THE UGLY TRUTH
While Idaho is home...
to some of the most beautiful scenery in the country, in 2019 it was also home to:
CASES OF DOMESTIC VIOLENCE
SEXUALLY ABUSED CHILDREN
Even worse, up to 66% of cases like these go unreported each year, so the numbers are likely much higher. And here in Kootenai County, we have the unfortunate distinction of regularly leading the state in these awful statistics.
Help, hope & safety
With numbers like that, our victim support services here at Safe Passage are more important than ever. Our free 24/7 safety planning and emergency shelter serve hundreds of families each year. Our counseling, child advocacy, and court and medical advocacy services guide survivors through their troubling times. And our teen outreach program reaches thousands of kids per year, giving them the education and resources to help keep them safe.
Ultimately, we’re working to make this a beautiful place again. For everyone.
