Annual Report

A Message from our Board Chair and our CEO

For 40 years Safe Horizon has been empowering survivors of violence to rebuild their lives and regain a sense of safety and stability. In 2017, we continued to evolve to meet the ever-changing needs of survivors by launching programs like our Child Trauma Response Team (CTRT) and expanding capacity for our Crime Victims Assistance Program (CVAP) and our five Child Advocacy Centers (CACs). We offered help after acts of violence and terror in our neighborhoods. And we were there to advocate and give guidance after dramatic public policy changes in Washington.
