Fall Appeal


Today SAFE is facing its own crisis, a financial crisis. The SAFE Board and staff have given and have pledged to give more. But more is needed to help the many people who come through our doors daily. SAFE needs your help to continue to exist for these family members and others – teaching them, coaching them, cheering them on; and yes, crying with them, because what they are going through is painful and we want to give them the chance for a better life.

This year, donations to SAFE’s annual fund will have an even greater impact than ever before. Donations of $100 and above will be matched by a committed board member who has pledged $10,000 towards this end. With your gift, we will be able to help over 365 victims (1 every day of the year); there are approximately 75 abusers; 150+ children and 30 family pets that benefit from your generosity to support SAFE. Please donate to SAFE and/or make an annual pledge in support of SAFE’s mission to end domestic and sexual violence – one client at a time. No gift is too small. But every dollar given is greatly needed. Thank you for your support in joining us in the effort to make this world safe.
