10 Reasons To Support Safe Passage

Wondering why you should support Safe Passage?

We’ve got ten reasons why!

This year is the tenth anniversary for DeKalb Community Foundation’s Give DeKalb County event! To celebrate ten years, we’re offering up ten reasons to support Safe Passage! Safe Passage has been a part of the DeKalb Community for over 40 years.

We are DeKalb County’s only domestic violence and sexual abuse crisis center. We offer support to survivors through every step of the healing process and provide all of these services with no cost to survivor’s, ever. We also provide community education as well as services for people who use violent behaviors.

We have participated every year since it began and your generous donations help us to continue to provide our services at no cost ever to survivors! Watch this page as we add videos for the month… you can click on the picture or the linked text to view the videos!
