About S.A.F.E. Place

S.A.F.E. Place believes that people are best able to make their own choices leading to the safest outcomes for their unique situation. Staff encourage survivors to explore their choices while learning of new resources. In doing so survivors become confident and empowered. Staff always remain non-judgmental when working with survivors because we realize each persons life should be self determined.

The programs offered are voluntary and free of charge. A survivor may choose to participate in any, all, or none of the programs. Survivors may change their mind whenever they would like to and can be assured that their values, lifestyles and life choices will be honored.

S.A.F.E. Place continues to provide temporary shelter, crisis intervention services, including counseling, advocacy and public education in Calhoun, Barry, and Eaton Counties.


Court Advocate Intern

May 2023 - August 2023 Charlotte, MI
“As an intern, I was provided with the opportunity to connect with real-life people on sensitive issues such as domestic abuse and relationship violence. Secondarily, I also handled clients who were dealing with neighborly disputes. Being stationed at the Eaton County Courthouse opened my eyes to the workings of the local justice system, and I enjoyed gaining all of this experience. My supervisor was very understanding and flexible, and the courthouse clerks were also very friendly and helpful. ”
