Confidential Safe House

Safe House

The Safe House provides refuge in a confidential location for victims of domestic violence and their dependent children fleeing domestic violence. Established in 1977 as one of the first 15 domestic violence shelters in the country. Families seeking safety from domestic violence can call the hotline (707) 546-1234 to discuss options, including the YWCA’s residential program known as the Safe House.

You get it in your head that it is your fault and that you created this – but that’s not true, there is something wrong with the person who abuses you...it’s not you. If it weren’t for the YWCA’s Safe House, I don’t know where I would be right now. It was through this program that I have completely changed my life around and created a better future for my kids.
