Your Kindness Will Save Lives

As COVID-19 continues to spread and threaten the health and safety of our community, the need for our domestic violence programs and services is more critical than ever.

Home is already an unsafe place for far too many and now, while families are isolated in their homes, tensions can escalate to a dangerous level. All of us at Center for Hope and Safety are extremely concerned about the increase in domestic violence expected during this extraordinarily stressful time.

Victims of Domestic Violence are depending on Center for Hope and Safety now more than ever before, and we remain absolutely committed to meeting their needs.

Our hotline is available 24 hours a day, seven days a week; our Safe House open to those in need, and we will continue to support our clients in every way possible.

We need your support to make that happen.

We have had to cancel our Evening of Hope Gala, the largest fundraising event of our year. To meet this lost income, we have launched the Time of Hope Challenge to raise the funds necessary to ensure the continuity of our vital services. Please make a donation today keep our doors open.

We hope you will take a moment to share our Stories of Hope below describing the impact of the life-saving work we do here at Center for Hope and Safety every day.
