2019 Impact Report

Empowering survivors of domestic abuse and engaging the community to break the cycle of violence.

At Safe+Sound Somerset it is our belief that every individual is valued and deserves to be Seen, Heard and Supported, especially survivors of domestic abuse in their journeys to Safety, Hope and Healing. Our trauma-informed, evidence-based programs are designed to support and empower survivors and their families as they build independent lives, free from violence and abuse. To that end, we are inclusive and welcoming to survivors who are diverse in gender, role, ethnicity and culture, sexuality, economic background and more. All of our programs are provided at no cost to survivors, confidentially, and in multiple locations throughout the county, and are available in English, Spanish and other languages as needed.
