History of Safe Space
Safe Space, Inc., originally known as the Butte Christian Center (BCCC), began as a grass roots movement in the early 1970's by local women to address a multitude of needs in Silver Bow County. Out of this endeavor, Safe Space was born. Over time, it began addressing the complex and specific needs of survivors of domestic violence and sexual assault. Preventative efforts continue to be a priority in our program, as community education and awareness campaigns are at the foundation of our philosophy statement and the services offered by Safe Space. Safe Space provides clients with the tools needed to break the inter-generational cycles of violence, and helps in recognizing that they can gain control of their lives. We assist in identifying the avenues for emotional self-sufficiency, as well as the strength and right to refuse the unacceptable.
