The 2019 Annual Giving Gala will be held November 23rd, 2019 at the Plantation Club at the Landings on Skidaway Island (Savannah, GA). With future goals of additional satellite Outreach Centers, Awareness Seminars and Campaigns in our community, it’s imperative that the fundraising continue. For this year’s Giving Gala we will be offering more entertainment options in addition to our VIP happy hour and silent auction from year’s past by including a post auction After Glow Party!
In the 1970s, SAFE Shelter was a dream shared by four local women, Lucy Brannan, Norma Brewin, Harris Lentini and Caroline Armstrong. There were shelters in Savannah, but no one place for victims and their children who had to leave their homes to escape the violence. Through their hard work and determination, SAFE Shelter was established in 1979.
In 2001, the current SAFE Shelter facility opened. With 48 beds, it is one of the largest domestic violence shelters in the state of Georgia. Safety, comfort and healing describe the shelter’s atmosphere. State-of-the-art security surveillance equipment, partnerships with local law enforcement and a dedicated staff keep our families safe. SAFE Shelter is certified through the Criminal Justice Coordinating Council and is a United Way Agency. Shelter services provides all at no cost to the victim.
Prevent. Protect. Change.
Our mission is to prevent domestic violence, protect victims and promote change in lives, families, and our community.
Since 1979, SAFE Shelter has been Savannah’s only shelter dedicated to victims of intimate partner violence and their children under the age of 18. Open 24-hours a day, 7 days a week, the Shelter provides safe, confidential services to all victims of domestic violence.
