Established in 1989, SafeHouse of Shelby County offers critical domestic and sexual violence response and prevention programs for the communities of Shelby, Coosa, and Clay Counties in Central Alabama.

During our 2012-13 fiscal year, SafeHouse provided residential services for 290 women and children seeking refuge from abuse. Over 1,100 callers reached out to our Crisis Line, and we provided information and support to each. Our Group Counseling Program, which provided over 600 units of service, offered an opportunity for survivors of abuse to learn from others while sharing their own experiences.

SafeHouse accomplishes its mission by providing:

  • Shelter, counseling, case management, community resource referrals, and other services
  • Individual and group counseling on the dynamics of domestic violence and sexual assault for children and adults as well as parenting support
  • An advocacy program to accompany women to court appearances and educate victims in court about the cycle of violence
  • Sexual assault and domestic violence advocates on call 24 hours, 7 days a week
  • Sexual assault advocates accompany victims to the hospital, assist victims through law enforcement, court systems, and provide counseling
  • Education and awareness programs for schools, hospitals, police departments, courts, social services, and other community members
