Safe Alliance supports victims of domestic and sexual violence and helps people build safe, healthy relationships through a continuum of shelter, legal and advocacy services. Safe Alliance assists over 12,000 people annually throughout Mecklenburg County and Lake Norman and reaches thousands more through educational and
prevention programs as well as institutional advocacy efforts.
Safe Alliance's annual Walk a Mile in Her Shoes event takes place Saturday, Aug. 19 and asks men to walk a mile in women’s high-heeled shoes. The event is a playful and fun opportunity for men to raise awareness in their community about the serious causes and effects of gender violence.
Throughout the year, Safe Alliance is also in need of volunteers to work in its domestic violence shelter, serve as rape crisis companions, and as court advocates.
