Art supplies for kids, paint, brushes, colored pencils, crayons and more were delivered to Safe Place from Share Art Heal this morning. SAFE | understands the importance of providing trauma informed prevention and intervention services specifically designed to serve these most vulnerable members of our community–our children. The SAFE Alliance is a structured partnership between SafePlace and Austin Children’s Shelter, two organizations that serve the survivors of child abuse and neglect, sexual assault and exploitation, and domestic violence.
They take their name, SAFE | Stop Abuse For Everyone, very seriously. All of their programs and services are available to everyone. No person will ever be denied the benefits of their programs and services based on race, ethnicity, sex, religion, age, language differences, sexual orientation, gender identity, socio-economic status, marital or familial status or disability.

Thank you to the actors of A Working Group in Austin who collected art supplies for Share Art Heal in December. We are grateful. These supplies will go to good use in the various SAFE children's programs.
