Empowered to Thrive

When a veteran joins Safe Place Community, they live in a community that houses and provides services to folks from varying socio-economic status. Well-cared for, therapeautic facilities and services attract many walks of life and provide dignity to anyone who calls Safe Place Community home. We are there for veterans as they navigate true-to-life neighborhoods and real life scenarios that can sometimes be absent in housing that only serves one sector of the population. This also allows Safe Place and residents to be detached from place-based and social service-based stigma.

 

Safe Place Community brings people together and empowers them to share a meal together, play together, heal together, build together, and find strength-based solutions for quality of life and a thriving community. We provide access, opportunities and resources in one space for those we serve. We work to help our heroes and neighbors in need AND create lasting change in household prosperity outcomes.
