Guided by the mission of being the leading advocate for eliminating domestic violence and human trafficking in northern Illinois, A Safe Place offers comprehensive services that provide a safety net to assist victims and their children and reduce the likelihood that they will need to return to a violent environment.  Services are designed to meet the immediate crisis and long-term needs of victims of violence and their children, and to prevent future violence. The continuum of services includes a 24-hour crisis line, crisis intervention, emergency shelter, rapid rehousing, transitional and permanent supportive housing, counseling, therapy (individual and group), art therapy, orders of protection, safe custody exchanges, supervised visitations, advocacy, supportive services, and the Safe Youth program. To prevent violence, A Safe Place offers community education and outreach, a mentoring program for adolescent boys to prevent next generation violence, and an intervention program for perpetrators of abuse.
