Safe Passage


Since 1977, Safe Passage has provided non-judgmental support and services to survivors of domestic violence. All of our services are free, confidential, accessible to people with disabilities, and available in English, Spanish, and other languages. Safe Passage provides crisis intervention, support, and advocacy services to women and their children who have experienced domestic violence. Our goal is to support survivors of domestic violence while encouraging self empowerment. We offer support groups which focus on parenting skills, GLBT domestic violence as well as a Latina group. Our children’s services are therapeutic play, a youth support group, individual counseling and we are currently striving to create a tutorial program at our shelter for our resident children.
