Welcome to SAFV's Virtual Summer Fundraiser 2022
The culture around us is constantly changing, and we see this as an opportunity to create lasting impact in how people live together in our community. We want to make this place safe for everyone to thrive.
Your contribution will help us meet our mission to advocate for victims and survivors of domestic violence and sexual assault while working to prevent domestic violence and sexual assault from ever occurring.

SAFV--MORE THAN A SHELTER
We are aligning our programs
with our philosophy
SAFV recognizes that domestic violence and sexual assault exists in Sitka, and we believe that systems of oppression, such as sexism, racism, and historical trauma are factors that create patterns of violence within our community.
We recognize that women are disproportionately impacted by this violence, contributing to a power imbalance in Sitka.
Students in the Sitka Youth Leadership Committee (SYLC), one of SAFV's Prevention programs, developed the "Mold Your Masculinity" campaign.
The goal is to help men rise to create their own healthy masculinity by educating youth and adults in Sitka on the harms of societal beliefs that pressure men to be a certain way.

A message from Tristan Guevin
SAFV believes our community has a responsibility to create an environment that prevents domestic violence and sexual assault and that supports the rights of women.
This is not only women's work.
MEN AS ALLIES.
A message from David Vastola
With your gift to our summer campaign you strengthen our programs to show you support a shift in general beliefs and behaviors so that all citizens,
independent of age, gender,
and other defining attributes,
feel safe and cared for wherever they go.
