A Safe Place is the only provider in Lake County solely dedicated to domestic violence & human trafficking. Serving individuals from the North Shore, Northern Illinois, Chicago, Wisconsin, and beyond, we offer lifesaving programs, arrange for safe living spaces, and help families transform their lives after domestic violence. Events like our 2021 DRIVE OUT DOMESTIC VIOLENCE Golf Outing ensure that we can continue to provide for those most fragile in our communities.
This year, the Golf Outing, coined "Teed Up for Change" will take place on August 16 at Briarwood Country Club in Deerfield, IL. While space is limited on event day, there will be many fun event components to participate in leading up to it, including a virtual silent auction, 50/50 and of course, the fundraising contest to crown the "King of Swing".

Why Get Involved? Domestic violence is in your community. 1 in 3 women and 1 in 7 men will experience domestic violence in their lifetime; that equates to 117,500 women and 49,700 men in Lake County alone. 1 in 15 children is exposed to intimate partner violence each year; 60,700 children in Lake County.
All money raised at the 19th Annual DRIVE OUT DOMESTIC VIOLENCE Golf Outing helps A Safe Place continue to provide a full range of services to families suffering from domestic violence and human trafficking and promote awareness of the impact and consequences of violence in our communities. Our programs and services transform and save lives every day.
