How We Help
Safehome provides a wide range of services to provide support and advocacy to victims and survivors of domestic, dating and sexual violence.
Trained employees and volunteers answer our crisis intervention hotline 24 hours a day with compassion and care – assessing a person’s safety and providing community referrals when needed. Once we have established that someone is ready to leave the abusive relationship, we will conduct an assessment to ensure that our location is safe, and we assist with the development of a safety plan to help the client arrive safely to our confidential location.
If you or someone you know is in need of shelter call our Crisis Intervention Hotline at 540-965-3237.
Safehome provides free and confidential temporary emergency shelter for those in danger. No referral needed. Staff is available 24 hours a day to assist those in need of shelter. Our shelter guests are offered a safe, comfortable place to stay while we assess their needs and provide them with services to meet their basic needs, community referrals, assistance with childcare, employment services and house options.
