Who We Are:
Safe Homes of Orange County is a private, not-for-profit agency serving as the county's primary resource for victims of domestic violence, teen dating violence and human trafficking. We are dedicated to providing confidential assistance directly to victims of domestic violence, teen dating violence and human trafficking. We create a safe space for those who have been devastated by violence and abuse; a space where victims and their families can reclaim and rebuild their lives. We serve with compassion and dignity, educating and empowering all individuals and families, regardless of race, sexual orientation, socio-economic or religious backgrounds, affected by violence in their homes or relationships. Through our legal assistance services, we help to protect survivors and hold abusers accountable for their violent acts. Our social services liaison program helps to ensure survivors have access to state and federal resources they so desperately need. Politically, we advocate for the development and implementation of victim-sensitive laws, policies and procedures across all systems that impact the safety and recovery of survivors of domestic violence.
