Safety can be an ongoing concern for many people affected by violence. Each survivor’s situation is unique, so every safety plan is different. While many causes of violence are beyond a victim’s immediate control, Safe Horizon can work with you by safety planning to manage the risks you may be facing, identify resources and options, and brainstorm steps you can take to increase your safety.
Safe Horizon is the nation’s leading victim assistance organization. Their mission is to provide support, prevent violence, and promote justice for victims of crime and abuse, their families and communities.
Safe Horizon envisions a society free of family and community violence. They will lead the way by empowering victims of domestic violence, child abuse, sexual assault and human trafficking to move from crisis to confidence.
Safety plans contain strategies specific to each individuals safety concerns. As a result, the plans may change as concerns and situations change.
Safe Horizon’s Client-Centered Practice approach recognizes that each situation is unique and strives to find information and resources to help.
They work with people in need to understand what they are most concerned about right now and offer them the most relevant information about their options.–
