1.800.291.2139 - 24/7 HELP LINE
There is a lot of pain in our country due to increased incidents of hate crimes and racism faced by the Asian American and Pacific Islander (AAPI) community. Amongst other barriers, women of color and immigrants must often confront the fear of deportation when deciding whether or not to call the police and are left to navigate systems that often do not offer culturally relevant services. 
According to the Women of Color Network, as many as 55% of Asian women reported experiencing intimate physical and/or sexual violence during their lifetime. We must speak up against racism because we know that survivors of domestic violence experience many barriers to finding help or leaving abusive relationships. Please read our statement on anti-Asian hate and racism.  
May is Asian American and Pacific Islander Heritage Month, and although there is a lot of pain, there is also much to celebrate. Check out our social media pages this month to celebrate AAPI game-changers!  

Mast General Store "Round Up 4 a Cause"

Our generous friends at Mast General Store Greenville are hosting a “Round Up for a Cause” benefiting Safe Harbor!
During the month of May, Mast General invites customers to “round up” their purchases to the next dollar as a contribution supporting survivors of domestic violence and their children in our community.
The round-up program is an effective way to make small change add up to a big impact. Each donation counts, and we appreciate yours! 

Western Carolina Sailing Club Diva Regatta

With the goal of "empowering women both on and off the water" in mind, we'd say the 2021 Diva Regatta was a success! 20 boats with strong female captains and crew (shoutout divas!) took to the waters of Lake Hartwell, and over $30,000 was raised in support of survivors of domestic violence.
Thank you to all sailors, volunteers and supporters for making this event a tremendous success. And a special thank you to Western Carolina Sailing Club for hosting and to Curt Rubinstein, Allison Fontenot, McCall Ginsberg and the Women on the Water Committee for planning and executing a great event.
Lastly, we'd like to recognize our generous sponsors: RYOBI, Foothills Community Foundation and Brookstone Tennis. Thank you for your support!

We need your help!

We are seeking dedicated individuals and groups who can share their time and talents answering calls on our help line and volunteering on various projects as a group.
