Safety for a survivor can be a place to sleep where they will not be emotionally, verbally or physically abused. Safety removes a survivor from danger, whether that means staying at our emergency shelter or by building a safety plan with the help of our 24-hour Hotline. Safety is the opportunity to reach out for assistance when going to the hospital after a sexual assault or accessing legal assistance in obtaining a protective order.
Safety provides a survivor with the space needed to begin to heal.
