“For so long, I’ve been hurt by other people. For so long, I’ve felt stuck, like there’s no way out. For so long, I didn’t have a voice of my own. Dropping everything and coming to Safe Passage, I found my voice. I found safety. I’m not scared and I learned I’m not alone. I’m happy again!”
– Safe Passage Client 2018
For many of us, the holiday season is a time of warmth, love, and family. We enjoy a season of thankfulness and celebration while looking forward to the new year filled with new beginnings. For many, coming to Safe Passage can be the start of a new beginning. Safe Passage can be the place where they can learn or re-learn what it means to feel safe, whole, and respected. Safe Passage can be the place where they allow themselves to dream again. Safe Passage can be the place where they finally start to feel like survivors.
For over 900 adults and children in 2018, Safe Passage was the beginning of a new life, a life filled with healing, hope, and possibility. Thanks to your support and the support of our generous community, we have been able to provide shelter, counseling, and crisis support for so many brave survivors of violence. As we look toward the next year, our services, unfortunately are more needed that ever. We hope you will consider making a year-end gift to support the life-saving work at Safe Passage and stand together with all of us in our fight to end violence.
