About Us

Safe Harbor is a nonprofit organization that provides shelter, supportive services, and advocacy to survivors of domestic violence and sexual assault. We also provide education, awareness, and resources to our community.

Our dedication to these objectives reflects our belief in the right of all individuals to a self-determined life free of violence.

Since Safe Harbor began as a grassroots effort by a dedicated group of citizens in 1997 our services and practices have continued to grow and evolve to meet the needs of survivors, those impacted by violence, and our community.

As part of our continued evolution to best serve survivors and our community, we are excited to announce Safe Harbor’s new logo as a visual representation of our mission as a nonprofit agency.

Our Executive Director, Kristen Floyd explained the inspiration for the new logo:

“Sexual assault and domestic violence are often seen as women’s issues, but these crimes know no limits – gender identity, sexual orientation, income, religion, or neighborhood – anyone can be impacted by these crimes and we want our community to know that we are here to help and offer that help without judgment, regardless of who you are or what your experience.

Our new logo embodies intersectionality. The intersecting circles that make the whole of our logo honor the intersections and interconnections of the people, influences, and social factors related to decreasing violence in the community and serving those impacted by that violence.

Safe Harbor’s colors are teal and purple in honor of sexual assault awareness and domestic violence awareness. The intersecting circles that make the whole of our logo honor the intersections and interconnections of the people, influences, and social factors related to decreasing violence in the community and serving those impacted by that violence.”

Mission

Safe Harbor, a non-profit organization, provides shelter, supportive services and advocacy to survivors of domestic violence and sexual assault, as well as education, awareness and resources to our community.

Vision

All individuals empowered to choose a life free of violence.

Pillars

Everyone has a right to a safe, self-determined life free of violence.

Interpersonal violence affects everyone. Understanding this, Safe Harbor offers inclusive services for all individuals regardless of race, ethnicity, gender identity, sexual orientation, or religious affiliation.

There is an intergenerational impact of violence we must address with intervention, education, and community awareness. Children from violent homes experience trauma that can have a lifelong impact.

Domestic and sexual violence are about power and control.

Safe Harbor Crisis Center strives to create a community where violence and abuse are not tolerated. Our prevention and intervention services can help empower each individual to reduce violence in Davis County.
