SPAN Programs

Safehouse Progressive Alliance for Nonviolence (SPAN) offers a comprehensive continuum of support and services for survivors of domestic violence designed to help them achieve and sustain safe, stable, self sufficient lives for themselves and their children.  SPAN programs include:

Emergency Shelter
A 27-bed residential facility and 24-hour crisis line service providing crisis intervention, safe shelter, food, and clothing to individuals seeking refuge from an abusive relationship. Advocacy, information, and support counseling assist each family to establish a safety plan that meets their individual needs.
Outreach Counseling Program Addresses a broad continuum of needs, from early intervention to long-term support toward self-sufficiency. Individual and group counseling are offered in English and Spanish in Boulder, Lafayette, and Broomfield. Population-specific services are available for immigrant and Spanish-speaking survivors, older victims of abuse, and survivors of same sex relationship violence.
Advocacy Program Provides crisis intervention and ongoing advocacy for survivors of interpersonal violence involved with law enforcement and the justice system.
Transitional Services Program Provides long-term, comprehensive support for women and their children as they work toward emotional and economic self-sufficiency. Services include access to affordable housing, long-term case management, and skill-building classes.
Training & Community Education Program Focuses on early intervention, prevention, and social change. Students in grades K through 12 are prepared to recognize signs and causes of violence and to integrate violence-prevention strategies into their peer relationships, families, and community. Community trainings inform area residents about abuse, challenge personal and organizational beliefs that perpetuate interpersonal violence, and promote equity and social justice.
