​Happy Holidays to our Amazing Community of Supporters and Allies

Our 40th Anniversary Year was our best year yet!

This holiday season, as we reflect on all that we have accomplished this past year, our thoughts turn gratefully to those who have made so many successes possible. Not only did Someplace Safe provide services to over 4,100 victims, survivors, community members and families this past year; our services provided critical safety, options, and hope to the members of our community:

“I felt more safe after leaving my appointment. I felt like someone genuinely cared about my safety and what happened to me.” - Survivor of harassment/stalking

“They listed without judgement and offered help when no one else would.” - Survivor of domestic violence

“I needed to acknowledge I had been a victim and abuse had taken place. The effect of this visit was life changing.” - Survivor of emotional abuse

Your support had an immeasurable positive impact on the lives of these survivors. Take a look at this listing of other amazing ways your support allowed us to provide safety, options, and hope in fiscal year 2019:

We invite you to help us continue this critical work in our communities, and honor Someplace Safe’s 40th Anniversary, by making your “$40 for 40” gift (or an amount of your choice) to Someplace Safe today! Just what can $40 accomplish at Someplace Safe? Take a further look below:
