Welcome to our blog!

Safe Passage, Inc is a Domestic Violence and Rape Crisis Center located in DeKalb County, Illinois.  We serve survivors of all genders and ages, whether the abuse occurred recently or years in the past.

Our work does not end at the door of our shelter; we know that.  So while this space will include information on our local services, it will also include commentary on national and global issues related to domestic and sexual violence. We also hope it will be a safe place for survivors to process and share their stories and a place for our society to listen and commit to doing more and doing better.

We need to call out the ways our communities have failed survivors.  We need to break the stigma of domestic and sexual violence by sharing our stories, our anger, and our heartbreak bravely and boldly.  We need to educate and to say that we won’t stand for a society that ignores or excuses domestic and sexual violence.

Share your feelings, your questions, and your thoughts in the comments on any post we share.  Our staff will be checking regularly to engage with you!  If you’d like to share your story, let us know using the “Contact Us” page and one of our staff will be in touch to discuss how you can anonymously share your experiences.

We’re glad you’re here.  We’re glad you’re with us.
