Who we are

Safehome is a nonprofit organization and domestic violence shelter in Overland Park for survivors of domestic violence.

Our core purpose is to provide a healing atmosphere where survivors of domestic violence can gain inner strength, explore options, receive support and establish a life free of violence.
