About Us

About Safe Harbor

We believe that everyone deserves to be in a healthy, nurturing relationship. We are here to help that happen.

We believe EVERYONE deserves happy, healthy relationships.

We are here to support those who are experiencing or have experienced domestic and/or sexual violence. Safe Harbor offers comprehensive services for survivors of sexual and/or intimate partner violence including: 24 hour helpline, children/youth services, community education and training, counseling, court advocacy, emergency shelter, and hospital accompaniment. Our team collaborates with survivors to provide support, education and referral information to help survivors meet their goals.

We provide services to anyone who has experienced sexual and domestic violence regardless of race, gender, age, national origin, gender identity or expression, faith, sexual orientation, disability, ethnicity and geographic location. Our services are available in both English and Spanish, and all services are offered free of charge to anyone seeking help.

Safe Harbor was founded in April 2000 after a St. Mary’s nurse, frustrated with the lack of safe housing options available to survivors of domestic violence, advocated within Bon Secours Health Systems for increased services and support.

While Henrico County is Safe Harbor’s primary service area, we are proud to collaborate with our community partners to serve the Greater Richmond region.

We are here to create a community filled with happy, healthy relationships. Join us!
