The mission of SAFE Shelter Center for Domestic Violence Services is to prevent domestic violence, protect victims and promote change in lives, families and our community.

Shelter services, all at no cost to the victim, include:
- 24-hour emergency shelter
- 24-hour crisis line (912) 629-8888
- Case Management
- Clothing and other personal items
- Support groups for adults and children
- Assistance with Temporary Protective Orders
- Courtroom advocacy
On-site professional counseling services SAFE Shelter Outreach Program:
- 7395 Hodgson Memorial Drive
- Suite 203, (912)651-0004.
The Outreach Program is staffed by two Victim Advocates, one of whom is bi-lingual.
This program was established to assist those victims who need court orders, but not necessarily shelter.
SAFE Shelter Follow-up/After Care Program SAFE Shelter provides temporary emergency shelter for victims of intimate partner violence and their children.
Often, families leaving the shelter face many hardships, sometimes causing them to give up and return to their abusive partner.
The shelter offers a Follow-up/After Care Program that provides a Case Manager who makes weekly home visits and conducts a monthly support group for families that have left the shelter.
Families can remain in this program for up to two years.
Donated household items such as furniture, linens, and kitchen supplies, are given to families in the Follow-up program to help them in their new home.
When available, client assistance can include help with rent, utility deposits and/or groceries.
