Center for Safety & Change has worked tirelessly with victims, survivors and their family members, offering life-saving and life-changing programs and services to thousands in Rockland and beyond.

On October 5, 1979, the center opened the doors to their Emergency Shelter and waited for the rotary phone to ring. The first day, they filled 11 beds and on the second day the remaining four. Since then, the phones have not stopped ringing. Today, the shelter remains a safe haven for thousands of children and families. From Rockland Family Shelter to Center for Safety & Change, the agency has grown into their name, as the only victim-centered non-profit organization in Rockland, offering free and confidential life-changing programs and services to victims and survivors of domestic violence, sexual assault, human trafficking and other crimes.
