 What is safe house?

Sharing our world while breaking bread is a great way to navigate an intimate dialogue and effective program. Our event is fueled by food and conversation for the soul, supplemented by a complete set of thoughtful event parts to create Safe House; an interactive safe space geared towards combating sexual, physical, emotional and domestic abuse

Safe House mission:

Safe House's mission is to embrace the hard conversations about sexual, physical, emotional and domestic abuse. For too long the norm has been to sweep these issues under the rug, but we are putting an end to that harmful pattern and finding our own ways to heal.
