About Us

Safe Connections was founded in 1976 and has been providing services continuously for 38 years. The first service was a true grassroots crisis phone line, and as it quickly became clear that counseling services for victims of abuse were needed, therapists were added to the small staff. In 1988, responding to research and our own recognition that breaking the cycle of violence and abuse must include reaching youth, we developed and introduced Project HART (Healthy Alternatives for Relationships among Teens), a violence prevention curriculum, in schools across the metropolitan area.
