24-hour Crisis Helpline

Women’s Services

Safe Connections provides an array of free services for women and teen girls who have experienced domestic violence, sexual assault and childhood sexual abuse. Our staff of master’s level counselors and supervised graduate practicum students offers help to women recovering from the abuse and rebuild their lives.

Crisis Intervention often begins with our 24-hour Crisis Helpline, the first stop when a woman reaches out at a time of crisis. In addition to finding a caring voice, she will find information about resources and swift intervention in the crisis.

Licensed counselors and licensed social workers provide emotional and psychological support through Individual Counseling to help women rebuild their lives.

Support Services including groups, classes, workshops and social groups help women learn how to enjoy healthy relationships and connect with others who have walked the same road as they have.

One in four women in college experience sexual assault and/or relationship violence. Safe Connections on Campus is engaged in prevention education and support services at colleges and universities across the St. Louis region.

A note about the use of pronouns on safeconnections.org:

According to the most comprehensive national study by the U.S. Department of Justice on family and relationship violence, the vast majority of domestic violence and sexual assault victims are female, and the vast majority of perpetrators are male. For that reason, feminine pronouns are primarily used on this site when referring to victims of violence, and male pronouns are primarily used when referring to perpetrators of violence. This should not detract from our understanding that, in some cases, the perpetrator might be female while the victim is male or of the same gender. All victims are deserving of compassion and services to address the violence in their lives.
