Mission and Philosophy

Safe Harbors' mission is to provide emergency assistance to victims of domestic violence, sexual violence, dating violence, and stalking, and to provide community education to break the cycle of violence. 

Our philosophy includes declaring freedom from fear of abuse as a basic human right; empowering survivors of violence to make their own choices by exercising their right to self-determination; respecting women, men and children equally; breaking the cycle of violence through education; offering a program that balances prevention, intervention and support; endorsing public policy that makes violence unacceptable; conducting our own affairs in an ethical and caring way; and establishing Safe Harbors in a leadership role in the community to promote a safe environment.

WE ARE A TEAM.

We work with local organizations, authorities, and leaders to promote survivor rights, gender equity, and a safe community. 

We are survivor 

centered.

 

We empower survivors by believing, offering options, and supporting individual choices. 

We look forward.

 

We raise awareness, provide education, and continuously strive towards a safe future for all.
