Southeast Spouse Abuse Program
SAFE is a private, non profit organization that assists survivors of domestic violence in Livingston, St. Helena, Tangipahoa, and Washington Parishes.
24/hr. Crisis Line
Although regular business hours are 8:00 am to 5:00 pm Monday through Friday, a SAFE Advocate is available after hours and on weekends to take crisis calls and assist survivors with any emergency.
SAFE Advocates discuss detailed safety planning with every survivor that contacts our agency. In doing this, Advocates assist survivors with thinking of different ways to ensure their safety in the event that they encounter a violent or otherwise dangerous situation.
Individual and Group counseling for survivors of family violence and their children
Adult Advocate and a Child Advocate are available to meet individually with survivors and/or their children
Emergency Shelter / Housing
SAFE’s emergency shelter services provides immediate shelter for victims and their children fleeing a domestic violence situation.
SAFE’s Transitional Housing Program offers survivors with a safe, confidential place to live as they are making the transition out of their abusive situation. The Transitional Housing Program is unlike an emergency shelter because it provides a home for the survivor and their children for up to one year and is a single-family apartment or house.
