Safehome is a nonprofit organization dedicated to breaking the cycle of domestic violence in our community. We offer free services, including shelter, individual and group counseling, court and legal support, and other community programs. Through these programs, approximately 8,000 individuals each year receive the support they need to live independent and violence-free lives. Our vision, since 1980, is to empower survivors and their children to live a life free of domestic violence.

Isolation is a tactic employed by abusers to maintain power and control over their partner. You can ease the isolation and loss of control by listening, providing information, and getting educated on how to help someone in an abusive relationship.
