Help Us Continue the Healing During the COVID-19 Crisis
Incidents of domestic violence are increasing during the COVID-19 crisis. The stresses of quarantine, job loss, lack of child care assistance, and financial hardship will exacerbate the abuse these women are already experiencing. Furthermore, emergency shelters and other resources are currently strained or full. Safe Passage is currently receiving an increase of phone calls from women seeking services. In addition, the COVID-19 crisis has directly hindered Safe Passage's ability to effectively raise funds and secure resources to support the emergency shelter and counseling services we offer clients free of charge.
Now is the Time to Join Us
Your $500 Donation will sponsor women who have fled a dangerous and life-threatening home environment with Emergency Shelter, one-on-one counseling sessions, housing assistance, and the delivery of personal supplies for those clients who are in need.
Your $100 Donation will sponsor a woman’s participation in the "Stepping Stones to a New Life" program which includes Counseling, Group Therapy, and Health Assessments for victims.

Your $20 - $50 Donation will support our ongoing Mentorship for Children and Empowerment Workshop programs that provide classes, recreation activities and therapeutic programs designed to empower and build self-esteem in young people and support women on their road to healing, self-sufficiency, and success in life.
Let's Start the Healing
Safe Passage is continuing to serve our registered clients while developing new fundraising campaigns. However, there remains an immediate need for funding to meet the increased need for our services during the COVID-19 crisis.
Together we will shine a light on the hidden pain in our community. Thank you for choosing to support Safe Passage and the Time2Heal program. We send you, your family and your community love and prayers during this challenging time.
