The mission of SafeHouse is to empower survivors of domestic and sexual violence through support and advocacy and to educate the community to prevent future abuse. Founded in 1989 as a safe haven for victims of domestic violence, SafeHouse quickly recognized that access to safe emergency shelter may be only one step for a victim on her way to freedom from violence. Long-term efforts to address a survivor's future include a continuum of care that goes beyond crisis calls and emergency intervention. Major programs include emergency shelter, transitional housing, children’s services, community services and prevention education. SafeHouse, which operates 24 hours a day/365 days a year, provides a wide array of supportive service. including individual and group counseling, case management, life skills classes, court advocacy, sexual assault response, community education, violence prevention and children’s advocacy.
