Someplace Safe depends on volunteers and community members like you. Over 10,064 hours of service were contributed by hundreds of dedicated individuals to help support our work and outreach efforts in our most recent fiscal year. These contributions equaled an economic impact worth over $287,000, all from individuals giving their time!
Our Staff and Volunteer Spotlights feature those who go above and beyond in helping us to create safe, healthy communities.
