Since 1979, Someplace Safe has provided safety, options, and hope to thousands upon thousands of individuals, families, and communities throughout our area. From those who have accessed services in the midst crisis, to family and loved ones who sought help in the aftermath, and all who are now empowered to lead safer, healthier lives…the impact of Someplace Safe is truly remarkable in our communities.

As we celebrate this season of thankfulness at the end of our 40th Anniversary year, we would like to express our deepest appreciation of your support. We also reflect, with thankful hearts, on all we have accomplished together this past year. Take a closer look below.

The impacts of Someplace Safe services are widespread and far-reaching, saving lives each and every day. We ask that you keep our agency, staff, clients, and volunteers in your thoughts as we enter the holiday season.
