Safe Connections offers individual therapy free of charge to adults and youth of all genders ages 12-19 who have experienced rape, domestic or dating abuse (physical, sexual or emotional), sex trafficking, and/or childhood sexual abuse. Compassionate and highly specialized, master’s degree-level therapists help victims reclaim their lives as survivors. Clients work hard in partnership with their therapists to build stability, improve mental/physical health and create greater safety as they pursue violence-free futures. Services are provided at our office on Hampton Avenue and, for youth, in area schools and community locations.
Potential clients can contact Safe Connections directly to schedule an initial assessment interview. Referrals can be made through our Crisis Helpline, private therapists and other social service agencies.
