A SAFE PLACE exists to break the cycle of domestic violence by providing battered victims and their children with safe shelter and resources and to prevent violence through outreach and education to at-risk populations.
The present shelter facility operated by A SAFE PLACE has twenty beds with individual living space. The Emergency Shelter Program provides up to 8 weeks of shelter and therapeutic environment for women and their children. An interim motel program is also available to provide emergency accommodations. The 24-hour crisis and shelter referral and information line handles nearly 3,000 calls each year.
The shelter is a refuge for women and children and has provided each with services that include professional individual and peer group counseling, as well as advocacy and other professional supportive services.
