Your gift will help survivors feel safe and strong again.


If you’d like to designate your gift specifically to emergency resources in response to the significant needs our clients are facing as a result of this health crisis, please write “SAFE Center COVID-19 Relief Support” in the comment section of your donation receipt.

COVID-19 Relief funds will go towards items like groceries and toiletries for clients’ households; rent and housing assistance to ensure our clients are sheltering in a safe environment; technology support, such as cell phones and basic computers, so they can access services and economic empowerment programs, which must now be conducted remotely and online; and immigration application fees to speed access to the immigration relief that is more important now than ever.


Other ways your critical donation helps SAFE Center clients:

$5,000 pays for legal representation for one trafficking survivor.

$1,000 covers for 20 individual counseling appointments.

$250 pays for two nights of emergency shelter for one survivor.

$100 provides a crisis response kit for one survivor.

$50 purchases a survivor’s safe transportation to and from essential jobs for one month.
