The Safe Hope Center, located at 512 Roland Avenue, is a partnership of agencies dedicated to ending family and sexual violence through prevention and response by providing comprehensive, trauma informed client-centered services in a single location.

While the Safe Hope Center may house many partners, the basic partners include law enforcement, prosecutors, civil legal service providers, and community-based advocates.

The core concept is to provide one place where victims of domestic or sexual violence can go to talk to an advocate, plan for their safety, interview with a law enforcement officer, get legal advice from an attorney, receive information on shelter, spiritual support, get help with transportation, or communicate their desired outcome to a prosecutor.

The links below are resources that can be utilized by victims. The Safe Hope Center is not responsible for any transactions that occur between the persons utilizing the resource and the listed agencies. If any costs incur from the use of the resource, it is the sole responsibility of the person utilizing the resource.
