KASE101, 98.1 KVET and Sonic are teaming up to help Give Back To Austin. Each month we will spotlight an Austin area non profit to shed light on their organization and how you can help. This month we highlight SAFE.
A merger of Austin Children’s Shelter and SafePlace, The SAFE Alliance is a Central Texas nonprofit whose mission is to stop abuse for everyone. SAFE provides support and stability for children, adults, and families who have experienced child abuse, sexual assault and exploitation, and dating and domestic violence.
SAFE supports survivors throughout Central Texas, offering shelter and housing, counseling, legal assistance, sexual assault forensic exams, a charter school, and more. In 2017, SAFE served over 6,500 youth and adults in Central Texas. In 2018, our SAFEline has received more phone calls chats, and texts, than ever before.
Because the cycle of violence is often transferred across generations, SAFE also works to prevent violence before it occurs. Through parenting assistance and education, programs that promote healthy relationships among teens, and more, SAFE is working to break the cycle of violence.
There are thousands of people in our community who are still living with violence and trauma. You can make a difference in our community by making a donation to SAFE during Amplify Austin on February 28th and March 1st. Visit safeaustin.org/amplify to learn more.
