What We Do

DC SAFE is the District of Columbia’s only 24-hour crisis intervention agency for domestic violence victims providing support and resources at any hour of the day or night.
Our mission is to ensure the safety and self-determination of domestic violence survivors in Washington, DC through emergency services, court advocacy, crisis shelter, and system reform.  DC SAFE’s first priority is the safety and self-determination of the individuals and families who seek assistance.  Once they are out of harm’s way, victims can make a plan for a stable future. Our programs work with each survivor on their individual needs to help them become a safe and empowered.
