2020 IN REVIEW
We made it! The toughest year we've experienced yet is behind us - ALL thanks to YOU. There are no words for how grateful we are to our supporters for standing behind us.
Despite all the challenges, we were able to successfully:
Host our first virtual event, Community Conversations, for Domestic Violence Awareness Month
Fundraise for #GivingTuesday with our first interactive art campaign, #MySafePlaceArt
Provide hundreds of services and resources to DV survivors in Oakland & beyond
Although it's clear the road ahead will not be easy, we are confident in our ability to succeed and look forward to another year building a better future, together.
Wishing peace and love in 2021!
Carolyn Russell, ASP Director
For the domestic violence victims who come to A Safe Place, their exposure to violence and abuse is an extremely debilitating health condition, a condition that often leads to death if not appropriately addressed. There is no more critical or pressing health interventions for these victims than the intervention, support, and hope offered by A Safe Place.
A Safe Place serves over 200 domestic violence victims every year, and provides education, counseling, and support to thousands more in an effort to prevent future violence. About half of A Safe Place’s funding comes from government sources for approved services, and the other half comes from dedicated individuals and concerned funders and foundations. A Safe Place relies on, and is most appreciative of, this financial support.
Special thanks to Gabrielle Union for her incredible donation to A Safe Place in 2020! Hundreds of individuals were helped with her donation, the impact of which is sure to continue to grow.
