A Safe Place is the sole provider of services exclusively addressing domestic violence in Lake County, Illinois. Through multi-faceted programs we assist victims in transforming their lives after domestic violence, prevent future abuse by addressing its root cause through abuser intervention programs, and educate the community about domestic violence and how we can all be involved in its end.
Demand for A Safe Place has tripled since the stay at home order began. Isolating a victim of domestic violence from their friends and family is the worst thing that can happen at this time. The staff is following rules to minimize exposure, making drop offs of food and supplies. Staff are also having their temperature taken daily. Emergency Orders of Protection are still being issued and supervised visits are conducted virtually. Tele-counselling remains fully operational.
