Every year over 8,000 survivors turn to Survivors and Advocates for Empowerment (DC SAFE) for help. When survivors are in crisis DC SAFE is there to give survivors support, hope, and empowerment.

For many survivors, DC SAFE is their first step towards taking back power and control over their own lives. The work that SAFE does wouldn’t be possible without the support of caring and compassionate individuals like you.
