Our organization was founded as a crisis line in 1977 by a group of local men and women who recognized the need for intervention for victims of domestic violence in Weld County. After incorporating as a nonprofit agency and with the donation of an older home by the Greeley Urban Renewal Authority (GURA), we opened our safe house in 1981. In 2003, a completed renovation and addition project doubled the size of our shelter so we would not have to turn people away due to lack of space. In 2013, the safe house was again updated thanks to funding from GURA and in 2014, they donated a second home to provide services to non-residential clients.
We serve women, men, children, transgender and non-gender conforming individuals affected by domestic violence. We do not discriminate based on race, ethnicity, religion, gender, age, disability (mental or physical), sexual orientation, socioeconomic, or immigration status. We oppose the use of violence and abuse as a means of gaining power and control over others and support equality in intimate relationships. We strive to advocate and support people who want to create a life free of violence, abuse and oppression. We recognize that violence affects the entire family, meaning each member requires healing and education in order to stop the cycle of abuse.
