Volunteers making a differenceVolunteers

Someplace Safe depends on volunteers and community members like you. Nearly 9,800 hours of service were contributed by approximately 600 dedicated individuals to help support our work and outreach efforts in our most recent fiscal year. These contributions equaled an economic impact worth nearly $230,000, all from individuals giving their time!
