77% of victims who have access to SafeHomes' services are able to stay employed, in contrast to the up to 50% who typically lose their jobs when domestic violence impacts the home.

If only 50% of survivors we serve each year do not become re-victimized, the law enforcement, court, medical and productivity cost savings to the local community is more than $600,000.
