ABOUT SAFE PASSAGE

Safe Passage is dedicated to creating a world free of domestic violence and relationship abuse.

All Safe Passage programs are free, accessible and confidential. Our comprehensive services include shelter, peer-support, counseling, education, advocacy, legal support and community education. We primarily serve individuals and families in Hampshire County.

Safe Passage provides survivors with the support and information that they need in order to make their own choices to keep themselves and their children safe and to rebuild their lives in the wake of domestic violence. We believe that empowerment is crucial to ending domestic violence and that through the empowerment of individuals, we can effectively work to change the whole of society.

We believe that violence is learned, violence is a choice, and that violence is preventable. We believe that domestic violence is not about loss of control; it is about exerting control over another person. While we recognize that domestic violence is primarily men's violence against women, we believe that all people are entitled to safe and healthy relationships. Given this, we offer services to anyone who has experienced domestic violence, regardless of the person's gender, sexual orientation, or gender identity.

All of our services are free, confidential, accessible to people with disabilities, and available in English, Spanish, and other languages. Click here for information about Safe Passage's services.
