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.

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.

This is a collection of essays regarding domestic violence.

sibling violence

According to Anahad O'Connor, writer of When the Bully Is a Sibling, "New research suggests that even when there are no physical scars, aggression between siblings can inflict psychological wounds as damaging as the anguish caused by bullies at school or on the playground." He explains that although rivalries between siblings are common, the line between healthy competition is crossed when one sibling is constantly the victim of aggression by another sibling, which is intended to cause harm and humiliation.

teen dating violence

Dear Oliviawritten by Beth Morrison, is a letter to an 8 year-old girl with an explanation of what love is. Morrison explains the hardships of loving someone as opposed to the actions that don't represent love--violence and abuse. She explains the importance of sharing correct information with young people to help prevent them from being in abusive relationships. Morrison makes it clear that it is  okay to let young people know that violence is never acceptable.

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)
