What makes Safelight Different?

We provide not only immediate short-term help but long term solutions to women, men and children in crisis.

Safelight gives individuals who have experienced interpersonal violence, sexual abuse and child abuse a real second chance, an opportunity to redesign and better their lives.

Today, due to Safelight's broad community support and partners, we are addressing needs in mental health, substance abuse, employment and housing.

About Us


our mission:
creating hope,
healing lives,
changing community

We offer free, confidential help for adults and children affected by domestic violence, sexual assault or child abuse. Our services include a 24-hour crisis line, emergency shelter, advocacy, counseling, case management, support groups, job training, transitional housing and much more.

Over time, the organization has evolved from a strictly crisis-driven agency to one striving to develop longer-term services addressing community needs such as low-income housing and the unavailability of medical, mental health and substance abuse resources.  Click here for more history about Safelight
