Transitional Services Program
Safe Voices’ Transitional Services Program is a two-year program of empowerment. 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. The Transitional Services program provides a safe haven for domestic violence survivors to reorganize their lives, create a network of positive social relationships, and establish a more secure economic base.
The purpose of Transitional Services is to enhance the ability of survivors to attain economic independence and emotional autonomy.
