Safe Space Domestic Violence and Sexual Assault Program opposes violence against body and spirit within the home and in the community.
Acts of domestic abuse are perpetrated primarily against women and children in the family. These acts of abuse are the result of culturally sanctioned patterns of dominance, coupled with society's silent acceptance of the use of violence.
Safe Space is committed to changing individual, social and institutional attitudes and practices which sanction domestic violence in our society.
Safe Space is committed to combating and preventing violence in the home by providing advocacy, emergency and supportive services to victims and their families, and be educating and involving the community in the process.
We affirm that social, economic and political equality between sexes can be achieved. When men and women acknowledge women's rights to equal status, and work together toward overcoming existing inequities, a more just and fair society will exist for all individuals.
Safe Space is committed to empowering women so that they can acknowledge their self-worth, realize their strength, and attain equal status in both the home and the community.
Safe Space does not discriminate because of race, creed, religion, color, national origin, disability, veteran status, age, gender, sexual orientation, or marital status.
Safe Space will provide assistance to primary and secondary survivors of domestic violence and sexual assault, with the goal of breaking the inter-generational cycle of violence.
