Head over to the Oglethorpe Mall and see our powerful display of Silent Witnesses. Each life size red silhouette, built by Bethesda Barn Builders, represents a local woman killed in a domestic violence homicide. You can read her story written on her gold chest plate. The silhouette in the picture is of a woman who would have turned 40 on her birthday. While her image was displayed at the Oglethorpe Mall, her children and family members left notes and flowers and put up her picture as a memorial. None of these women called SAFE shelter.
No one who has come to SAFE Shelter since we opened our doors 38 years ago has been a homicide victim. If you know someone who needs help, please call SAFE Shelter.
