For two decades Marc made donations to Safe Passage in honor of Sabina’s birthday.
Founded in 1979, the non-profit has pursued its mission in two ways:
(1) Safe Passage helps survivors of domestic violence through offering an emergency shelter, legal services, counseling, children’s services, and support groups. The shelter provides a safe setting and time for survivors to find resources through the agency’s support and services. There and at the main office, dedicated employees and volunteers help survivors access their own power and resourcefulness. The agency welcomes both survivors and their loved ones on journeys “to safety, hope and healing.”
(2) Safe Passage also works to prevent domestic, sexual, and interpersonal violence.
Most recently, Safe Passage has been promoting community engagement through its Say Something initiative. The program offers many ways to be involved: a four-session Prevention LAB training, interactive social media campaigns, and an extensive Field Guide workbook.
The Prevention LAB helps participants to learn, act, and become empowered advocates against violence in their communities. The LAB’s 8-hour (in 4 sessions) interactive training offers knowledge and skills to prevent and interrupt violence.
“We believe that whoever you are, whatever you do, and whomever you come into contact with – everyone can Say Something to help prevent interpersonal violence.”
