- SafeSpace helps victims in the acute stage of abuse by bringing them to one of the two secure and confidential shelters.
- SafeSpace promptly assesses their immediate needs and helps to meet these needs. These include safety from the batterer, medical attention, rest, food and clothing, injunctions for protection, emotional support, safety planning, counseling and legal advocacy.
- After the acute phase, SafeSpace advocates work with the victim to obtain employment, childcare, legal services and safe housing. Clients who do not enter our shelter are offered all of the same services.
- SafeSpace helps victims to develop personal safety plans, learn how to escape the abusive partner, relocate, and utilize support groups.
- Educational sessions are conducted to improve the victim’s perceptions of their personal value and availability of their life options.
- Children’s Advocates provide direct services to children and their special needs and also provide Parenting Skills Education.
- Legal Advocacy assistance provides information and support in regards to the legal system. This entails escorting the participant to the courthouse and being there while the participant fills out the injunction paper work. The advocate provides emotional support when they appear in front of the Judge and informs them of the services of the State Attorney’s Office and Victim’s Compensation.
- SafeSpace continually updates its services and programs with the help of the Florida Coalition Against Domestic Violence.

    I have heard that women's shelters can use old cell phones as emergency 911 phones. I am the tech volunteer for Indian River Estates and I have been given old cell phones that still work fine but have been replaced. Does the Shelter in Vero Beach need them?

    I have been cleaning out children's books. Thought you might like them for children to read while they are with you. They are not brand new books but are in good condition. Let me know; I can bring them to you.
