Safe Passage supports survivors of sexual and domestic violence in many capacities and places which include, but are not limited to the emergency department, detention facilities, the courts, local schools, our safe shelter, Children's Advocacy Center, and main office location.
Our work centers around empowering those we serve by providing information and options, enhancing safety, and increasing autonomy and choice for survivors. We create a non-judgmental space where advocates work in partnership with clients.

ADDITIONAL WAYS TO HELP
During the holidays:
Adopt a Family: This is an annual program where donor volunteers help meet the needs of our client families during the holiday season. We pair volunteers with a family and provide them with their holiday wish list. Information on how to participate is available in October.
Giving Trees: Donor volunteers can stop by our office and participating businesses to take tags off our Giving Trees to shop for. Information on how to participate is available in October.
Gift Cards: If there is not enough time to shop, gift cards in small denominations are always wonderful for gas, groceries, taxi rides, and other small items.
Thank you so much for your continued support of our survivors and their families!
