2021 is here, and a new year always brings new opportunities.
For SafeHouse Denver, those opportunities are centered around supporting survivors of domestic violence through our programs and services. Domestic violence (DV) is a pervasive issue, and the need to address it is always present.
As we look at the year ahead, please join us in a variety of ways to raise funds and awareness for the work that we do and the survivors that we serve.
Your support is a key element of our mission to help adults, children and youth reclaim their right to a life free from domestic violence. We look forward to having you join us for another year of empowering survivors!
