Circle of 6 was a first place winner in the White House’s Apps Against Abuse challenge. We encourage people to download this or a similar safety app to have this available on their phones. This tool allows users to instantly and discreetly access their 5 most trustworthy friends should they find themselves in need of help or in an unsafe situation. GPS coordinates and mobile messaging functions give contacts all of the info they need so that that they can jump into action to get help on its way ASAP. Search your app store (available for Android or iPhone) or download from the Circle of 6 app’s website.
