What Can We Do About It?

For Victims

It’s not your fault! You are not responsible for someone else’s controlling behavior. You have choices to help heal yourself and keep you and your family safe. You can call SAFE at 910.893.7233 to talk about your options.

For Family, Friends & Others

Do your part to keep victims safe and hold offenders accountable. Explore and honor the victim’s choices, whether you agree with them or not. Condemn the abusive behavior, but never condemn the victim.

Crisis Line

910.893.2733 If you or someone you know is being abused, isolated or controlled by a spouse, partner, boyfriend or girlfriend, SAFE is here to help. Call our confidential crisis line 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year. We are here to listen, support you, let you know how we can help and offer you a safe place to stay.

About SAFE

About Us

SAFE of Harnett County is a non-profit, charitable organization located in Harnett County.  SAFE offers services to all persons affected by interpersonal violence, which includes:  domestic violence, sexual assault, stalking, elder abuse, human trafficking, child abuse, dating violence and unhealthy relationships.


SAFE’s mission is to provide safety and serve as an advocate for sexual assault and domestic violence victims, survivors and their families.  We achieve this mission by providing empowering, client centered services.


SAFE of Harnett County is committed to serving victims and survivors of sexual assault and domestic violence through advocacy, empowerment and education.


We believe that battering is more than physical abuse. It is a pattern of coercive behavior enforced by violence in which all parts of a victim’s life are subject to the batterer’s control. In addition to physical abuse, such coercive behavior includes sexual, emotional and economic abuse. We believe that domestic violence and sexual assault can only be stopped by working with victims to help promote healing and with perpetrators to promote change (intervention), helping systems work effectively to increase safety for victims and hold perpetrators accountable (advocacy) and creating a community that supports peaceful families and healthy relationships (prevention).


SAFE offers a wide range of services from a 24-hour, confidential crisis phone line, emergency shelter, court advocacy programs, to community education and professional training programs.  Our services are free, confidential, and available to anyone who is a victim of interpersonal violence.

Thank You to the Family Violence Prevention Services Program, US DHHS, and NC Council for Women for financial support. SAFE is a United Way Agency.
