Last year the Executive Director of Safe House for Women, Jessica Hill, came to Element 74 looking for an updated design for their website and more importantly, one with well-organized content.
When working with so many individuals that have been through traumatic situations, they wanted their site to look and feel like something that can be trusted and depended on for information.
The Safe House for Women was established in 1991, and their shelter has been continuously near capacity ever since. Although ‘women’ is in the name, Safe House offers services for men and children as well. They take clothing donations for any age or gender in their thrift shop, and offer constant assistance for anyone in danger or looking for advice.
Their support doesn’t stop at providing refuge and physical necessities either; they offer emotional support as well by standing with victims throughout their entire struggle. They provide information on the best legal services to utilize to their clients, and even go to court with them to give emotional support during the court process. From there they offer individual counseling as well as support groups to ensure proper growth and recovery within victims.
Doing a website for an organization like Safe House for Women is nothing short of an honor. Not only have they helped hundreds of families, but they help revolutionize the world by changing the way people think about and react to domestic violence. They even play a huge part in trying to stop domestic violence from happening in the first place with education and community outreach.
With all of the services they offer, Safe House for Women is in constant need of volunteers and donations; everything from donating items off of their wish list to donating time on your day off can make a big difference. Visit their website to see how you can help: www.semosafehouse.org
