Safehope’s education and outreach programs are intended to educate the public about Safehope services while providing awareness and information on sexual violence, domestic violence and/or stalking. Programs offered to the community are provided free and confidential.

Educational programs can be arranged throughout Harvey, Marion and McPherson counties in English and/or Spanish.
PROGRAMS FOR DOMESTIC VIOLENCE, SEXUAL VIOLENCE AND STALKING
This community conversation is designed for any group of people who want to know more about how sexual violence, domestic violence and/or stalking; how it impacts our lives, our sense of safety, and the community as a whole. We use these programs as an opportunity to let people know what services are available, how to be supportive to friends and family who have experienced abuse and/or violence, and to engage community members on ways to come together and make our communities a safer place.
