Established in 1977, SafeHouse Denver operates the only shelter in the City and County of Denver that exclusively serves victims of domestic violence. SafeHouse also runs a non-residential Counseling & Advocacy Center where we provide all of our support services to women and children experiencing intimate partner violence who don't need emergency housing.
SafeHouse Denver works to eliminate domestic violence in our communities by
- providing shelter and counseling to victims of abuse;
- working with public and community agencies to improve the way our systems respond to domestic violence;
- and by offering educational programming to prevent future violence.
SafeHouse began as a 16-bed shelter providing a safe place for women and their children. Today, SafeHouse's shelter has 26 beds plus cribs, serving more than 340 women and children in a typical year. In addition, SafeHouse serves hundreds more women and children through non-residential services. More than just keeping women and children safe, SafeHouse services include individual counseling, advocacy support groups, legal assistance and referrals to other services.
