Wine, Women & Shoes to benefit A Safe Place is going from Fear to FIERCE in 2021!
Wine Women & Shoes is a glamorous fundraiser to raise money for a special cause. Help us support victims of domestic violence and human trafficking by participating in a number of ways as we lead up to our Broadcast Event on July 16 from 7-8pm.

Our fundraisers are competing to raise the most money for this incredible cause to earn their crown, and every dollar you commit will get them one step closer!
- Since COVID-19 began, domestic violence and human trafficking has skyrocketed. In one month alone, A Safe Place saw a 635% increase in hotline calls compared to a typical month AND more than tripled current shelter accommodations for people in imminent danger.
- 1 in 3 women and 1 in 7 men will experience rape, physical violence, and/or stalking by an intimate partner at some point in their lifetimes, amounting to more than 117,000 women and 49,700 men in Lake County alone.
- 1 in 15 children are exposed to domestic violence each year, amounting to 67,000 children in Lake County.
- 94% of clients that leave our emergency shelter do not return to their abusers.
WE NEED YOUR HELP.
A Safe Place is Lake County's sole provider of services exclusively addressing domestic violence and human trafficking. Each year, A Safe Place impacts over 30,000 lives. People seek services from our emergency shelter, crisis counseling, legal advocacy, family visitation services, individual and group counseling and outreach and education. Through our programs and services, we walk hand-in-hand with victims on every step of their healing journey.
