Welcome to Safe Futures, where we save lives, restore hope, and change the future for those impacted by domestic violence and sexual assault in southeastern Connecticut.

Founded in 1976 as the Women’s Center of Southeastern Connecticut , Safe Futures began as an information and referral service for women entering the workforce.  Today, Safe Futures operates two 24-hour hotlines, an emergency shelter, and a transitional living program for families working to rebuild lives shattered by domestic violence or sexual assault.  Safe Futures also provides counseling and advocacy, case management, court advocacy, support groups, and educational programs for schools and community groups.  All 21 towns in New London County are served by the agency.
