You may have heard Safe Harbor is building a new domestic abuse shelter and services center in Greenville County. 

Domestic abuse is a pervasive, destructive, and traumatic crime affecting thousands in Greenville each year. Law enforcement responds to 4,200 domestic violence calls/year: an average of 11.5 per day. According to SLED, Greenville County reports the most domestic violence victims in the state.

Safe Harbor's new domestic abuse center will include an updated, restorative shelter and co-locate all of Safe Harbor's supportive services onto one site (currently in three locations.) This holistic services center will offer survivors immediate safety, shelter, and long-term healing.

Our goal is to raise $200,000 from our community by March 31, 2024. We are so close... join us!

I am a survivor of domestic violence.


“I didn’t know that I was being abused...

I am a survivor of domestic violence.


“I didn’t know that I was being abused because my definition of abuse looked different. My husband pushed me, but most of my suffering was verbal and psychological. I left my husband to protect our young daughter. Almost immediately I felt the weight of his oppression begin to lift. I could see a difference in my daughter as well. Then he broke into my home and assaulted me in-front of her.

I sought help and was led to Safe Harbor. My daughter and I are in counseling now. I am sorting out the mess that abuse has caused. I am finding my voice and seeking opportunities to grow and better my life as well as my daughter's. She will gauge her self-worth from my own self-worth. I must show her that she deserves the best, by expecting the best for myself.

Many years I suffered in silence. By telling my story and being honest with friends and family, I am taking control of my life again.”
