Safe Passage Inc. &
Safe Passage Prevention

Safe Passage Inc. is a domestic violence shelter that serves six counties in Southeastern Indiana. After being open for ten years, staff began to serve adults who were children of their past families. The adult children needed Safe Passage services themselves. Seeing the cycle of domestic violence repeat itself, Safe Passage knew it was imperative to expand intervention services to include prevention services.

Primary Prevention &
Socio-Ecological Model

Our Prevention team uses the Socio-Ecological Model Framework to guide our efforts in combatting relationship violence. Ultimately the goal of primary prevention is to stop violence before it even begins; this means shifting and influencing factors that put people at risk for violence in the first place. Understanding the different factors that put people at risk, or even protect people from risk, is very complex. The Socio-Ecological Model clarifies how risk, or protective, factors influence each level of our society and relationships. To learn more about this framework, click here.
