The SAFE Place

The SAFE Place is a survivor-focused, trauma-informed program that provides FREE and CONFIDENTIAL support services to survivors of sexual assault, intimate partner violence, stalking, and sexual harassment (sexual violence) while working with campus partners to end sexual violence. We serve all members of the SFSU community including students, staff, and faculty. The SAFE Place recognizes that sexual violence impacts all people, regardless of race, ethnicity, age, gender, or sexual orientation and strives to foster a safe and welcoming environment. We are committed to addressing sexual violence within a social justice, anti-oppression framework. The SAFE Place helps survivors determine their own healing path by reviewing options for reporting, medical care, mental health care, alternative healing interventions, and empowering survivors to choose the path that feels right for them.

Mission Statement:

Empowering and supporting survivors through advocacy to end sexual violence.
