SafeSpace is a social change and social service program working to end physical, sexual, and emotional violence in the lives of lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, and HIV-affected (LGBTQH) people. We provide information, support, referrals, and advocacy to LGBTQH survivors of violence and offer education and outreach programs in the wider community.
SafeSpace Support Line

Victim advocates are available to accompany you to court, the hospital, the police, or other agencies and to assist you in obtaining the services you need. Victim advocates also provide one on one support which may include safety planning, education, referrals, as well as emotional support.
SafeSpace offers support groups for survivors. These groups give survivors a safe and supportive environment to tell their stories, share information, and offer and receive support. Support groups also provide survivors an opportunity to gain information on how to better cope with feelings and experiences that surface because of the trauma they have experienced. Please call if you are interested in joining a group.
Education and Outreach Programs
We provide informational programs for the purpose of educating people about violence in the LGBTQH community.
