Mission Statement

Safehome's mission is to break the cycle of domestic violence and partner abuse for victims and their children by providing shelter, advocacy, counseling, and prevention education in our community.

Background Statement
Safehome began in 1980 as the Johnson County Association for Battered Persons. Initially the Association established a network of safe homes, then in 1984 opened a 15-bed shelter that was full the first night. In 1987, the name became Safehome and the shelter was expanded to accommodate 29 residents. In 2006, Safehome purchased and renovated a hotel that allowed for more comfortable and expanded accommodations. In 2014, Safehome added space to its shelter program to accommodate 60 beds.
Safehome is not just a shelter. The emergency shelter represents only a portion of the work done to break the cycle of domestic violence. Safehome offers a specialized children's program, court advocacy, transitional living assistance, on-site full time staff attorney, on-site hospital advocacy, as well as professional counseling and support groups.
Safehome is one of 6 metro area shelters, and is the only shelter located in Johnson County. Safehome is proud to be a United Way Agency and rated as a Four Star Charity by Charity Navigator.
Impact Statement
  1. In 2019, Safehome took 4,799 crisis calls, provided emergency shelter to 326 adults and children, provided 8,226 hours of counseling to 948 adults and children, provided court advocacy to 939 clients, and provided legal advocacy and representation to 290 clients.
  2. Safehome ended 2019 with a net operating profit for the first time in four years.
  3. In 2019, Safehome introduced a new premier-event: Horses, Hats, & Hope. Safehome also sold out the golf tournament for the first time and celebrated the 2nd annual Write Your Story event.
GOALS for 2020:
  1. Strengthen our fundraising and grant making to meet increasing client needs.
  2. Strengthen our understanding of clients’ needs, satisfaction, and agency effectiveness through increased surveys and better reporting tools.
  3. Study the need and feasibility of building a pet shelter on-site.
  4. Review available literature on evidence-based, best-practices, for all our services.
Needs Statement
  1. Safehome's primary need is for general operating funds that the agency can direct where most needed. Approximately 72% of Safehome's annual income comes from sources that restrict its use to particular programs and expenses. Safehome relies on unrestricted funding to support those expenses not covered by grants and other restricted dollars.
  2. Financial support for the Children's program. Safehome provides critical early intervention to young children who have witnessed domestic violence and provides a healing environment to break the cycle of violence.
  3. Corporate and private sponsors for the agency's three annual fundraisers: Hats, Horses, & Hope (September, 2020); Golf Tournament (August 2020); and Write Your Story (October 2020).
  4. In-kind contributions of products, particularly bath towels, twin-sized sheets and comforters, paper products, personal care products, cleaning products, and nonperishable food.
  5. Safehome is proud of its outstanding volunteer programs. We need volunteers to work in all aspects of the agency's operations, including hotline, childcare, court, office support, maintenance, and fundraisers.

CEO/Executive Director/Board Chair Statement
Safehome provides life-changing and life-saving services for survivors of domestic violence. As Safehome's CEO, I am proud of our role as a partner in the Johnson County Lethality Assessment Program. Since its implementation in 2011, the number of domestic homicides in Johnson County has been reduced from 7 in 2011 to 5 in 2012. From 2012 – 2017, Johnson County had zero or one homicide each year. Unfortunately, in 2018, Johnson County had 2 domestic violence homicides. Although we know Safehome saves lives, we also know that violence is increasing. In 2017 and 2018, Kansas saw the biggest increase in domestic violence homicides in more than 20 years. Safehome needs your support now more than ever.
Our board members, staff, and volunteers are dedicated to our mission to end the cycle of domestic violence in our community. We make a real difference in the lives of the survivors we support. Here are some ways we make a difference: Clinical Counseling Program – staffed by licensed, graduate-level clinical therapists; Economic Advocacy Program – clients learn budgeting, engage in credit repair, and learn how to write resumes and apply for jobs; Legal Advocacy – we are the only DV agency in Kansas with a full-time attorney on staff; Community Awareness – we are in the community talking about domestic violence and our services; Bilingual Advocacy – we have 7 full-time bilingual staff members; Health Navigation and Advocacy – there is a correlation between domestic violence and negative health outcomes, we want to close that gap. We provide all these services at no cost to the client.
We see some of the worst things that people can do to each other, but we also see far greater numbers of generous people who give of themselves and their resources to make the world a better place for survivors.

Also, case notes in individual client files track a client's progress toward meeting individual goals, increased knowledge regarding the cycle of violence, and behavioral and attitudinal changes.
Examples of Program Success
Safehome helped a young woman named ‘Kristin” and her three boys, who fled a life of abuse and anguish. Recently, Kristin was compelled to get back in touch with Safehome and sent this note:                                            
"You may not know who I am. But my 3 beautiful boys and I have walked your halls, studied in your family room, eaten at your table and been blessed by the many people, staff and volunteers, who loved on us enough to help us make our way back to freedom. There are not enough thank you’s in the world to show my appreciation for the kindness and generosity of your home, that you opened up to us, and welcomed us with full hearts, knowing that we needed love more than anything. Today, I have been free 1 year. 1 year ago I called you and left our former life of hurt, anguish and scars behind. We LOVE our new life. Thank you for being a crucial key to that happiness and safety… Please keep doing what you are doing. I believe you saved my life.”

Safehome’s Children’s Program serves children, birth through age 17, who come to Safehome’s shelter or through the Clinical Program. 

Experienced program staff work together to meet the needs of children exposed to family violence. Staffed by a full-time, professionally licensed Children’s Therapist, a full-time Children and Family Advocate and other experienced staff, the program uses art therapy and play therapy to help children express their feelings regarding the violence that they have experienced, and to learn alternatives to violent behavior. In individual, group, and family counseling, children learn to express their feelings through age-appropriate, therapeutic activities such as sculpting, painting and Sand Tray Therapy.
Families receive support and case management from the Children and Family Advocate and other staff who reinforce the concepts, behaviors, and skills learned by the children and mothers in counseling sessions with the Children’s Therapist.

Program Success Monitored By

The Children's Therapist records outcomes and observations in individual client charts from sessions conducted with children. In addition, the Therapist administers parenting counseling questionnaires to mothers after four sessions. Safehome's Clinical Director reviews and compiles results on an on-going basis for reporting purposes. 

Examples of Program Success

When children arrive at Safehome, they are often scared, confused, and hurt. Kyle age 10, struggled to express his emotions, often getting angry, pushing, hitting his sister and mother, running out of the room when he became frustrated or overwhelmed. He got in trouble at school. In therapy, Kyle realized he was copying how his father coped with anger: aggression and avoidance.

The Family Therapist and Kyle created a “Patience Pack.” They cut strips of paper and wrote activities to help him remember how to practice patience.
They included a stress ball, journal, a reminder of a place where he felt safe, and dozens of ways to soothe him when he felt overwhelmed or angry.
Taking time to carefully decorate and fill up the pack, eventually Kyle felt his creation was complete and ready to try. After a few weeks of having his “Patience Pack”, Kyle’s mother reported improvement. Reinforcing his progress, Kyle’s therapist continues to help him internalize the healthy coping skills.

Safehome's Clinical Counseling Program provides no-cost, confidential counseling support for survivors of domestic violence and their families. The Counseling Program is staffed by six licensed therapists, including two full-time bilingual therapists. Services include individual therapy for adults and children, family counseling, and support groups. 

In individual counseling, the therapist and client work together to understand the dynamics of domestic violence as it relates to the survivors’ experience, create a safety plan, heal trauma, better manage anxiety or depression, and learn healthy life skills. In child and family counseling, therapists utilize a variety of modalities, including play therapy, sand tray therapy, art therapy, and attachment- focused family therapy. Group Counseling provides a supportive setting for victims to escape the isolation of an abusive relationship.

  • The Clinical Counseling Program is evaluated using client questionnaires, standardized assessment tools, and therapist observation.
  • Adult clients are evaluated using PHQ-SADS. Questionnaires measure clients' safety, self-esteem, confidence levels, knowledge of domestic violence issues, and support received from the program. 
  • The parents of child counseling clients complete the PSI-4 SF during the initial session and complete the assessment after their child has participated in 3 months of counseling services. The questionnaire measures the parent’s understanding of the effects of domestic violence on children and their development of new parenting skills. 
  • Child counseling client outcomes are measured by therapist observation in the counseling sessions.
  • Group counseling clients complete a client questionnaire. The questionnaire measures knowledge of domestic violence, feelings of isolation, safety planning skills and support received from the group.
Examples of Program Success
As an example, one mother who endured physical and emotional abuse throughout her marriage, wrote about her experience with Safehome's counseling program.  "One phone call to Safehome changed everything.  I had my first counseling appointment with Jessica two years ago.  I believe she saved my life.  She reassured me that I wasn't crazy and that my boys needed me.  The work I do at Safehome is bringing me to a place where I can be truly independent from the man that abused me for so many years.  Today, the boys and I are doing great!  It wouldn't be possible for me to have come this far without Safehome.  Each day, they prove their commitment to stop the cycle of domestic violence and to changes live - one at a time.  I am proof."   
Safehome’s Lethality Prevention Program was created in 2011 to respond to a dramatic increase in the number of clients at risk of lethal harm by their domestic abusers. The Lethality Assessment tool allows police officers, medical personnel, and Hotline Advocates who are assisting a survivor of domestic violence to determine the likelihood that the survivors is in a high-risk situation. Survivors who fall in this category are immediately offered safety planning, shelter at Safehome (even when the shelter is at capacity), and community resources.
Clinical Intake Advocacy appointments are guaranteed within 48 hours of the contact. During these appointments, the survivor is able to relate his or her story in a safe, compassionate environment. The Lethality Prevention Advocate provides safety planning, support, and information about Safehome’s and community resources. Clients are also connected to support groups and referred to a Safehome therapist when needed.

  1. Providing Clinical Intake Advocacy to individuals in crisis.
  2. Critical follow-up with victims referred to Safehome following assessments of “highly lethal” situations.
  3. Providing one-on-one advocacy to address individual victim needs. The Clinical Director will supervise the Lethality Prevention Advocate.
Examples of Program Success

"Selma" is a woman originally from the Middle East who called Safehome desperate to get away from her husband's long-time emotional, physical and sexual abuse. Selma explained that she had been wooed to the U.S. with many promises if she would marry him. The Intake Advocate noted that Selma was emotionally and physically fragile, having been kept in an unfurnished apartment where she slept on the floor and was denied money for food. She was threatened physically and her husband forced her to have sex with him. After scoring “high danger” on a Lethality Assessment, Selma was offered immediate shelter at Safehome. While in the shelter, Selma joined a support group while and began individual therapy. In addition, a District Court Advocate immediately helped her file a temporary Protection from Abuse Order and supported her through the final PFA hearing. Safehome's Staff Attorney provided ongoing legal assistance.


Safehome's Housing Program is designed to assist adults and children that are homeless due to fleeing domestic violence. The program consists of three elements: rental assistance, case management, and outreach support services. It offers a tremendous emotional and financial help as women embark on a life free from violence. 

The Housing Program provides graduated rental assistance over a one year period. This allows clients to prepare and transition toward self-sufficiency and offers a rebuilding period which fosters healing and personal growth while gaining financial independence and long-term stability.
Other support services available as part of Safehome's comprehensive wrap-around services include individual and group counseling, life skills and domestic violence education, referrals to community resources, goal planning, parenting support, economic advocacy, and financial management education.

Long-Term Success The long-term goal of Safehome's Housing Program is to break the cycle of domestic violence in the lives of adults and children leaving abusive situations who have become homeless as a result. This is achieved by addressing any existing barriers, setting and achieving personal and educational goals, achieving a lifestyle of safety and long-term stability, and increasing self-sufficiency. Clients will be successful if they are able to sustain permanent housing.
Program Success Monitored By The housing advocate compiles outcome information statistics on program participants on a monthly basis. Clients also have an opportunity to complete an anonymous survey after they complete the program.
Examples of Program Success Client "Celia" had multiple stays at Safehome's shelter. She returned to her abusive partner several times and had several failed attempts at living independently. In addition, she had co-occurring mental health concerns and financial abuse that resulted in problems with credit and finances. In April 2019 she was selected for Safehome's housing program. During initial meetings with the Safehome housing advocate, she did not want to discuss her history. The advocate worked with the client to develop trust. She eventually disclosed her mental health diagnosis and a desire to work, and a desire to be successful in housing. She began seeing a therapist. After two rental applications, she was able to find an apartment. She is now safe and stable. She feels comfortable in her new home and excited about having her own space and to cook and decorate. She has developed skills to be able to advocate for herself, a problem that had previously prevented her from staying successfully housed. 

The Economic Advocate works with each shelter client to help determine each person's economic, vocational, and educational needs and strengths. The Economic Advocate provides resources and referrals tailored to each client's economic goals, including help with budgeting, opening a bank account, saving, writing a resume, and finding a job. The Advocate monitors each client's progress through weekly client review meetings.

A weekly life skills group helps shelter residents expand their knowledge of community resources and independent living skills. An eight-hour financial literacy class is offered to both shelter and outreach clients each quarter to further explore money management, debt reduction, credit ratings and repair, banking and saving. Spanish language classes are provided in the shelter and in the community.

Examples of Program Success

"Alexi" and her 3 sons moved into Safehome's shelter to escape a violent relationship. Working closely with her Safehome Economic Advocate, Alexi identified areas of financial abuse in her previous relationship. With the help of her Safehome Economic Advocate, Alexi accessed her credit report. She then addressed bad accounts by paying off outstanding utility debt. Eventually, she was able to move into her first apartment - in her own name. With the help of her Economic Advocate, she applied for and received public benefits through Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF), for survivors of domestic violence (a Safehome partnership with the Department of Children and Families). Then, Alexi decided to return to college to complete her education. She completed two Associate degrees and gained full-time employment as a Nursing Assistant at a local hospital.
