Help Change Victims of Domestic Violence into Victors Over Crisis

Safe Horizon is the nation's largest organization that provides support and services for children, women, and men affected by domestic violence. You can be part of our efforts to raise awareness about domestic violence and to take action to help survivors move from crisis to confidence.

  • Community program offices - Live in New York City? Safe Horizon offers local offices where victims and their families can find in-person assistance, including referrals to critically-needed services.
