We live in communities we love — where our neighbor waits for her husband to leave the room before she exhales.
We live in communities we love — where families are under attack, from within.
We live in communities we love — in a culture that’s numb to violence.
A culture where one in ﬁve children has witnessed domestic abuse.
A culture that asks, “Why doesn’t she leave?” without seeing all that stands in her way.
A culture where leaving is even more dangerous for those who are marginalized.
Where black women face death at the hands of their partners almost 3 times more often than white women.
Where trauma plagues more than victims and their families, but whole neighborhoods, whole towns, whole cities, and whole generations.
Where statistics tell one part of the story — but only we can write the rest, together.
At Safe Harbor, we believe everyone has the right to be safe and valued in their homes and most intimate relationships.
That’s why every day, inspired by the strength and resilience of survivors, our team of skilled and passionate advocates, counselors, staff, partners, volunteers, and supporters work together to make our essential human right a reality.
Because we understand that changing our culture of violence requires more than shelters, courtrooms, and jails. It requires the active, intentional, systematic cultivation of compassion, equity, and respect for self and others.
It requires the generational nurturing of our empathy, humility, and resolve to live differently. It requires each of us, every day, committing ourselves to the unbreakable, unsinkable, unshakeable kinship we all share — our precious, enduring humanity — our right to safely be.
