Annual Report

A Message from our Board Chair and our CEO

We thank our generous
supporters for partnering with us.

Our Impact

From the moment the city shut down in March 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we offered 181,000 survivors critical services across our citywide network – in-person and virtually.

Figures below represent our impact at select programs during the COVID year:

Anti-Racism

Safe Horizon remained fiercely committed to our anti-racism journey, including by advocating for police accountability and calling for an end to systems of oppression.

Anti-Racism
Connecting Clients to Safety

While risks of harm during isolation surged, our three 24/7 Hotlines, the Domestic Violence Hotline, Rape and Sexual Assault Hotline, and Crime Victims Hotline were at the other end of the line for New Yorkers in crisis around the clock, responding to 113,150 calls.

Connecting Clients to Safety
Domestic Violence Shelters

Across our eight domestic violence shelters, 772 survivors and their 1,080 children slept safely and began their journeys to healing.

Virtual Chat

When it wasn’t safe to speak on the phone, advocates at SafeChat, our new digital platform, guided survivors to safety and resources through 1,988 digital chat sessions.

Virtual Chat
Crime Victims

Our Crime Victim Assistance Program, which provides information, advocacy, and healing support after a crime, advocated for 33,500 New Yorkers to be seen, heard, and supported as they navigated the justice system.

Crime Victims
Helping Children

Even as schools, daycares, and other supports closed, 6,990 children and 3,277 caregivers in a crisis received immediate help at our five Child Advocacy Centers, where children are treated after sexual or severe physical abuse.

Helping Children
Homeless Young People

Essential workers at our Streetwork Project helped 550 homeless youth access meals, showers, laundry, shelter, and a joyful community, redefining what it means to be “home.”

Homeless Young People
Legal Services

When the city shut down, Safe Horizon stood up, assisting 5,000 New Yorkers to access orders of protection through courts, law projects, and our whole citywide network.

Legal Services
Justice for Immigrants

In a year of trauma and anti-immigrant injustice, our Anti-Trafficking Program supported 253 survivors, and united seven families to start new lives free from exploitation. Our Immigration Law Project provided legal representation for 332 crime victims navigating the immigration justice system, while organizing and advocating for systemic changes.
