Who we are
The Safe Center LI is a creation of two former non-profit agencies that separately served the victims of domestic abuse and child abuse. Located in a historic Grumman building in Bethpage, it was created in 2014 through the merger of the Nassau County Coalition Against Domestic Violence (CADV)and the Coalition Against Child Abuse & Neglect (CCAN). Each had been providing services for victims of abuse for over 30 years.
The merger into one unified non-profit provides a fast and easy path to resources that assist in saving and changing the lives of the victims of domestic or dating abuse, child abuse, and rape and sexual assault.
Who we help
Children, women, men and elderly victims of sexual assault and emotional, psychological and severe physical abuse are those we serve. We make no distinction between race, creed, color, gender, income bracket, sexuality or age.
How we help
The Safe Center offers a broad spectrum of services from counseling to housing, from advocacy to referrals, etc. through a highly trained, nurturing and compassionate staff of professionals well qualified to provide the highest level of services to enhance the recovery of trauma victims and their non-offending family members.
