SAFE HOPE CENTER
The Site Coordinator is Jennifer McCraw.
The Safe Hope Center, located at 512 Roland Avenue, is a partnership of agencies dedicated to ending family and sexual violence through prevention and response by providing comprehensive, trauma informed client-centered services in a single location.
While the Safe Hope Center may house many partners, the basic partners include law enforcement, prosecutors, civil legal service providers, and community-based advocates.
The core concept is to provide one place where victims of domestic or sexual violence can go to talk to an advocate, plan for their safety, interview with a law enforcement officer, get legal advice from an attorney, receive information on shelter, spiritual support, get help with transportation, or communicate their desired outcome to a prosecutor.
