Self-reliance for every survivor

We know that 95% of all domestic violence is against women. However, the effects of domestic violence cross gender and age boundaries.

  • If male children see domestic violence, they are 700 more times likely to repeat it.
  • If they experience domestic violence, they are 1,000 times more likely to repeat it.
  • More than 6 million women are assaulted by their male partners every year.
  • Every 9 seconds a woman is assaulted by someone that “loves” her.
  • 1,500 women are killed every year by a male partner.
  • Domestic violence is the most underreported crime in America.

WomenSafe provides the shelter, counseling and resources to help survivors move forward to a brighter and safer tomorrow. Since our services are free of charge, we need you.

Donating can benefit your community and change lives.

Your gift today has the power to transform the lives of thousands of women, men, children and pets escaping violence each year. With your partnership, we will be able to continue our work to alleviate violence and give back the dignity and strength that so many of these survivors have lost.
