About Defend Our Children

Line separator

Established in June of 2019, Defend our Children Inc., a 501(c)(3) nonprofit, was formed to allow tax deductible fundraising to equip schools with Safe Space Security Desks (SSSD). These SSSD's give students instant "Lock Down Safe Space" defense the moment they recognize a threat by providing Safe Space Shelter from classroom attacks, tornado flying debris, malicious fire alarms and bullying or sexual assault retreat. The SSSD's will be available for use in Schools, Homes, Office and Government Buildings in early 2022.

We made our efforts publicly known on February 14th, 2021 (3 years after the Parkland Shooting) and have since received overwhelming support.

We are currently aligned with security consultants for personal security assessments of your school or facility to assure you are selecting the best protection device to suit your specific needs. 

We thank each and every single person that has taken the time to help promote our efforts in protecting children's lives!

About the Safe Space Security Device (SSSD)

Line separator

The Safe Space Security Devices are the modern solution to the biggest safety issues students face throughout their education...physical violence and mental abuse.

When a student realizes they are in danger, they simply duck and enter the desks safe space and close the door around them. This device provides "Shelter in Place Lock Down" protection to extend the valuable time a first responder has to arrive. 

Every Student deserves the right to their own "Safe Space Lock Down" defense against the threats of injury they can face every day.
