Advocacy 101: Amplifying Survivor Voices to Disrupt Violence 

This workshop is a collaboration between Safe Harbor and the Women’s Rights and Empowerment Network (WREN). It is an introductory session that will provide participants with the basic skills and know-how needed to lead successful advocacy efforts with decision-makers. Participants will learn how advocacy is used to influence policy with local and statewide decision-makers, as well as how a survivor's story can become elevated as a call to action.
If you are someone who identifies as a survivor, supports survivors, believes a world without violence is possible, wants to make change, a caseworker, and/or a volunteer, this training is for you!

Holiday Program

Every December we accept gifts of new clothing, toys and household goods for our clients. Many women who have suffered domestic abuse have no other resources for the holidays, so the women and children we serve are extremely grateful for your gifts.

Last year, several hundred individuals were helped by our Holiday Program. We count on you - our community - to help provide holiday gifts for our clients and make the season brighter for those whose lives have been shattered by domestic violence.
Our 2020 Holiday Program will take place December 16th and 17th.

#DVAM2020 Recap

We have just wrapped up Domestic Violence Awareness Month 2020, but at Safe Harbor, we are always raising awareness about domestic violence.
This year we took an intersectional approach to our awareness campaign by focusing on five issues that intersect with domestic violence (DV.) These issues are: how youth experience DV, barriers faced by women of color, barriers faced by the LGBTQ+ community, the lethal combination of guns and DV, and the correlation between housing and DV.
These issues do not exist independently, but rather, compound and can make it more difficult for people experiencing domestic violence to find help. 
  • 1 in 3 teenagers report knowing a friend or peer who has been physically hurt on purpose by their partner.
  • Black women are 3x more likely to be killed by a man than White women, and 48% of Latinas reported abuse from their partners increased when they immigrated to the US.
  • WIthin the LGBTQ+ community, intimate partner violence occurs at a rate equal to or even higher than that of the heterosexual community.
  • An abuser’s access to a firearm increases the risk of femicide by at least 400%.
  • Domestic violence is one of the leading causes of homelessness for women and their children.
Unfortunately, this is just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to the pervasiveness of domestic violence. With 1 in 4 women and 1 in 9 men reporting physical abuse from their partners in the US, and South Carolina ranking #11 in the nation for women killed by men, we must work together to end domestic violence for all people. And to end domestic violence for all people, we must discuss all the barriers faced by those experiencing abuse. 

Support Survivors by Providing a Meal! 

During the COVID-19 pandemic, we have adapted our shelter set-up and protocols to comply with CDC recommendations to prevent the spread of illness. Our bed space has been reduced in order to comply with social distancing guidelines and ensure the safety of our shelter residents.

We have set-up a meal train for volunteers to donate meals and funds to purchase meals for families staying in a hotel during this time. Please sign up to make, order or fund a meal for families in our shelter program!
