Here at the SAAFE House we operate in a unique working environment, much unlike many other workplaces. We approach every aspect of what we do with a simple, yet powerful set of core values:

1)       Respect – all individuals have worth just for being and abuse in any context in unacceptable

2)       Lifelong Learning – All individuals have the capacity to learn, change, and grow, and individuals can and want to learn what is of value to them

3)       Teamwork – People are our most valuable resource and we need others in order to be successful

4)       Open Communication – Open, ethical communication, honesty, and trust are crucial to the success of any group

5)       Responsibility – We have the responsibility to protect the therapeutic environment for our clients, to provide the best possible services, and to be aware of our needs and seek help when we need it

Employees describe their work here as challenging and demanding, but say that it is equally rewarding, fun, and encouraging. We all work in an environment that teaches us to learn every day – not only learning about the issues of domestic violence and sexual assault, but also learning about ourselves, our co-workers, and the world around us. We are committed to our clients and passionate about the services we provide, and consider it our pleasure to fight against violence in our communities!
