Safe Harbor is helping change the conversation around domestic violence and sexual assault to reduce the incidence of this type of violence in the community. We hope you will join us in this effort by supporting our expansion, building a dedicated Community Lifeline and Prevention Center. Call 385-515-4008.

Healthy Relationships is based on the Safe Dates curriculum for adolescents.
Through this curriculum, teens learn about healthy relationships, choices, and communication. The curriculum addresses attitudes, opinions, and behaviors related to dating abuse and healthy relationships.
The curriculum explores healthy and unhealthy relationships, what equality looks like, and emotional development.
The curriculum also includes engaging activities, such as developing safe skills and interactive discussion scenarios.
One of Safe Harbor’s pillars is a commitment to community outreach and prevention education. It is part of our mission to provide domestic violence and sexual assault education, awareness, and resources to our community.
Safe Harbor can provide tailored presentations to school, church, community group or other organization. Topics can include:
- Domestic Violence 101
- Sexual Assault 101
- Safe Harbor Services
- What you can do to stop violence in your community
- Bystander Intervention
Many groups request a presentation to launch or conclude a fundraising drive and if you have donations the presenter will be happy to pick them up and bring them back to Safe Harbor (as long as they fit in his/her vehicle!).
Safe Harbor is also available to table at community events.
What You Can Do
Let your legislator know you support funding for Safe Harbor and violence prevention.
Change the conversation. If you overhear someone saying something that helps promote sexual violence or even jokes that demean any group, say something. Silence condones myths that can help create a society where violence is accepted.
Have a presentation on Healthy Relationships at your school or organization.
