Empowering Transformative Healing.

Safe In Harm’s Way Envisions a Future Where Every Unique Survivor Thrives

Safe In Harm’s Way is built by survivors, for survivors of domestic violence.

We share stories and provide immediate actionable resources for people to identify, overcome and heal from all forms of
intimate partner mistreatment, while educating individuals and organizations to be better support people.

We meet the greatest needs for historically marginalized communities with limited and difficult access concerns, addressing disparities in economics, court systems, transportation, and limited public awareness to unique dilemmas survivors face in gaining access to services, and ease of communication.

Our bold, diverse, and inclusive Team and Board have lived through abuse, and thrived to create unique and diverse online services to survivor’s biggest problems.

We gather today on the land of the Iowa, Kickapoo, Potawatomi, and Sac and Fox. As members of the Kansas City community, we aspire to show appreciation, respect and concern for all peoples and our environment.

We honor the Iowa, Kickapoo, Potawatomi, and Sac and Fox and other Indigenous caretakers of these lands and waters, the elders who lived here before, the Indigenous today, and the generations to come.

We envision a world where survivors can recognize the feelings in their relationships as the hallmark red flags of abuse, effortlessly communicate, access resources, and embark on a journey of healing without financial or logistical barriers.

Our vision is driven by the urgent necessity for accessible and free or low-cost trauma-informed solutions.

By nurturing diverse online communities with embedded safety mechanisms, we provide a sanctuary where survivors can explore their healing process in privacy and security.


We stand as architects of change, amplifying the voices of survivors by addressing the intricate web of emotions entwined with unhealthy relationships.

Our values encompass a sanctuary where feelings find validation, where emotions find expression, and where healing begins.

All corporate and advocacy partners must recognize the nuances present in healing and be diverse, equitable, and inclusive in creating change and connection for survivors, their children, and pets.
