Safelight is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit agency that provides support for survivors of interpersonal violence, sexual assault and child abuse. We make it possible for families who want to be free of violent relationships, to succeed. We make hope real.
Safelight welcomes all survivors (and their families) of domestic violence, sexual assault and child abuse regardless of race, color, religion, sex (including pregnancy, sexual orientation, or gender identity), national origin, disability, age, genetic information (including family medical history).
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.
