Safehouse is NOT ran "safely" at all concerning the other residents. They currently have supposed domestic violence victims PHYSICALLY THREATENING other domestic violence victims/residents. There is also verbal abuse occurring all the while the workers and advocates say they use the approach of " having the residents work out their issues of violence between one another by themselves". Excuse me??? Safehouse OFFERS groups and a weekly house meeting, none of these that residents are required to attend??? How are victims of domestic violence supposed to automatically know how to be assertive and not aggressive, passive-aggressive, or just plain passive? So, these women are living in a situation similar to what they were able to escape ALIVE! Please, anyone who knows how to address these crooked types of situations regarding non-for-profit agencies where the immediate staff DOES LITTLE TO NOTHING to help these women de-stress, regain self-esteem, and most of all protect their clients from further abuse, please stop the benefactors from donating until this agency can get their abusive clients to understand the agencies "no tolerance" policy! Also, another tidbit, when I lived there, my advocate not only cancelled our therapy sessions, but I was also asked by another resident if I was interested in buying another residents pain pills. Curfew is MIDNIGHT, but the nighttime workers have a BED they SLEEP in at night, all the while residents stay up all night, doing whatever they want, sleeping all day. It's a SHAME because its a beautiful, all amenities included house. Plus, I got severely ate up by bed bugs while living there, and they DID NOT make me send my clothing through the dryer upon arrival, all the while paying for an exterminator to come spray once a week and Safehouse had a "bed bug house" DONATED to them(which is supposed to attract the bugs and kill them). I will be returning to this site to check the comments and if anyone who is legit enough in their concerns to need my testimony, I am willing to speak with you some other way than "Topix". Thank You to those who will take this info and be proactive and look into it and STOP THE CYCLE OF DOMESTIC VIOLENCE!
