What We Offer
Safe Passage offers a variety of programs designed to support survivors of domestic violence. We encourage survivors to start with whichever program they feel would be most helpful. For some people, this might be our hotline; others may find a support group or an appointment with a counselor to be the first step.
All programs and services at Safe Passage are based on an empowerment model, in which we provide the support and information you need to make your own decisions to keep yourself and your children safe from violence. All of our programs are free, confidential, and available in English, Spanish, and other languages as needed.
All programs at Safe Passage are available to anyone who has experienced domestic violence, regardless of gender, gender identity, or sexual orientation.
Safe Passage is ready to help you make your own decisions about how to increase safety and emotional well-being for yourself and your family. We won't pressure you to do anything you're not ready for, and we'll never judge your decisions. Our role is to provide the support and information you need to make your own decisions—and our goal is to help you be safe.
