Safe Passage is the Hampshire County organization addressing domestic violence.
Safe Passage Mission Statement
Safe Passage is committed to ending domestic violence and oppression in women’s lives. All Safe Passage programs are free, accessible and confidential. Our comprehensive services include shelter, individual and group counseling, education, advocacy, legal support and community education. We primarily serve women and children in Hampshire County.
Safe Passage provides women with the support and information that they need in order to make their own choices to keep themselves and their children safe and to rebuild their lives in the wake of domestic violence. We believe that empowerment is crucial to ending domestic violence and that through the empowerment of individuals, we can effectively work to change the whole of society.
We believe that:
While we recognize that domestic violence is primarily men’s violence against women, we believe that all people are entitled to safe and healthy relationships. Given this, we offer services to anyone who has experienced domestic violence, regardless of the person's gender, sexual orientation, or gender identity.
