Transitional Service Program
The Safe Voices two year Transitional Service Program is a program of empowerment. It is designed with your future in mind - a life free from violence to grow and be all you desire to be. It is specifically geared to assist victims of domestic violence to take back their lives and rebuild a home for themselves and their children, a home that is safe and financially secure.
Safe Voices knows that fleeing domestic violence can leave one with the financial burden of childcare, rent, groceries, utility bills, transportation, legal fees and prevent one from gaining the skills needed to support their families.
