Center for Safety & Change is a nonprofit, tax-exempt community organization serving victims of domestic violence, sexual assault, and other violent crimes in Rockland County, New York. Since its inception in 1979 , Center for Safety & Change (formerly Rockland Family Shelter, Inc.) has worked to end violence against women and their children through:
Direct services for survivors of domestic violence, sexual assault and other violent crimes
Survivor advocacy and empowerment
Outreach and education initiatives
Inter-agency collaboration and technical assistance
Leadership in coordinated community action
Center for Safety & Change provides both residential and non-residential services for survivors of intimate partner violence and their families, as well as targeted outreach and education programs for the larger Rockland County community. Responding to Rockland's rich cultural diversity, Center for Safety & Change works to ensure that all of our programs, policies, and procedures reflect and respect the varied needs of our clients, particularly those in immigrant and ethnic or religious populations, including Hispanic, Haitian, Asian, Middle Eastern, and Hasidic and Orthodox Jewish communities.
