At DC SAFE, survivors of domestic violence find a comprehensive, coordinated network of care – one that empowers them to achieve safety, stability, and freedom from fear. Through 24/7 bilingual services, survivors access critical information and referrals, as well as immediate direct support, such as lock changes, emergency transportation, and shelter placement. Within hours of a violent incident, families can move into apartment-style units, thanks to SAFE Space, a 24-hour emergency housing program. Advocates work closely with each client, helping them navigate next steps – filing civil protection orders, securing long-term housing, connecting with mental health care, and more. And for those at highest risk for re-assault or homicide, DC SAFE collaborates with numerous city agencies to ensure expedited support. Last year, more than 10,000 survivors accessed these life-saving services. You can make sure safety is always an option.
