About us

Message from Executive Director

Imagine what it is like to live in fear every minute of your life, even while you’re sleeping. Imagine having to constantly worry about the safety of yourself, your children, and your family. Imagine if you were told every day that you aren’t worth anything, that you aren’t deserving of help. Imagine not knowing there is a way out and the darkness of fear, shame, and guilt surrounding you.

Domestic violence is a famously silent crime. No one wants to talk about it or believe that it happens but 1 in 3 women and 1 in 4 men have been victims of some form of physical violence by an intimate partner in their lifetime. We received more than 2,500 calls to our crisis line last year, provided emergency shelter to nearly 300 victims and their children, and more than 600 victims received services through our community outreach services and SafeShelby Sexual Assault Services facility.
