A Safe Place For Victims of Domestic Violence

DC Safe is building a new domestic violence crisis shelter

The District’s ability to tackle domestic violence is getting a big financial boost.  A new shelter is nearing.  This morning I’ll talk to DC SAFE about the new facility and what it will mean in the fight to break the cycle of abuse.  My guest is Michelle Sewell – Shelter Director at DC Safe

The DC Council approved $3M for a new domestic violence crisis shelter.  Since the start of the pandemic, DC SAFE has housed over 200 people in their current shelter, but due to limited capacity, they’ve had to make over 150 emergency hotel placements. The new facility will double DC SAFE current capacity. More information can be found here:
