Domestic violence affects the entire community. Even though most cases of domestic violence go unreported, every year there are still over 2.500 reports of domestic violence in the Savannah area alone.

Since 1979, SAFE Shelter has offered life-saving and life-changing services and programs to victims of domestic violence and their children free of charge. SAFE Shelter’s efforts are only possible because of the generous support we receive from individuals and organizations, who believe everyone deserves to live a life that is violence-free.  You can be a part of the solution. Please donate today. Your gift gives adults and children hope that comfort, safety and security are within reach; and provides them with the resources to rebuild their lives.  All donations are tax deductible, and only SAFE Shelter clients benefit from your donations.
