If You Need Help

Stop Abuse for Everyone (SAFE) is an organization that provides information, resources, a media campaign, educational brochures, an advocacy program, as well as, expert speakers on an array of abuse topics.

We differ from most organizations because we help victims that tend to fall in-between the cracks and have few services available to them.

We are working on building a National Directory of Services for men, the disabled, the elderly, gay/lesbian/bi/trans, immigrants, teens, and more. If you have any shelters you would recommend, please contact us.


If there are not any services provided near you, try contacting your local domestic violence service provider, the Domestic Violence Hotline, the Domestic Abuse Helpline for Men & Women.  If you are in immediate danger, dial 911.

SIBLING VIOLENCE

  • When the Bully Is a Sibling, written by Anahad O'Connor, states, "While normal rivalries with siblings can encourage healthy competition, the line between healthy relations and abuse is crossed when one child is consistently the victim of another and the aggression is intended to cause harm and humiliation." 

Teen dating violence

  • Dear Oliviawritten by Beth Morrison, details the benefits of parent-child conversations pertaining to self-love and respect. She tells readers, and parents especially, the importance of informing children about healthy relationships. Her guidance on having age-appropriate conversations with children at a young age will help shape the intimate relationships that they will have throughout their lives.

Abused men

  • How many know... is a two-page list of information on battered men, by David Fontes. 

  • Violence Knows No Gender, by Bill Kuhl. "Domestic violence against men is the subject of my graduate thesis. From my research, I have come to realize that, despite the increased media attention it has received lately, people still know very little about this form of abuse - especially two of its most common components." (added 11/26/01)
