Opened in 1998, San Francisco SafeHouse is a 501(c)3 non-profit transitional housing program that provides a clean and sober community to homeless women escaping prostitution. SafeHouse empowers women to live independently, learn new skills, and find employment during their 18-month residence. Ten women at one time are housed in the 24/7 confidential facility. SafeHouse staff provides guidance through the women’s recovery from alcohol and substance abuse, domestic violence, abuse from childhood, and other traumatic situations. During our program, they receive therapy, intensive case management, participate in recovery programs, learn money management, return to school, find employment and housing, and ultimately live independently.
