Partner Spotlight: Safe Place

Austin Diaper Bank is pleased to partner with Safe Place, a non-profit organization that has been advocating for women and their children for over 35 years.  Safe Place is helping to end sexual and domestic violence through safety, healing, prevention and social change.
  • Safety- Crisis support hotline, hospital advocacy for rape victims, emergency shelter for anyone escaping domestic violence, UT charter school for children living in the shelter, and PlanetSafe, a collaboration with Travis County to provide safe visitation and exchange services for parents leaving abusive relationships.
  • Healing- Counseling, Short-term financial assistance and supportive housing
  • Prevention- Counseling and education programs for the prevention of dating violence, domestic violence, bullying, and sexual assault/abuse.
  • Community Education- Presentations and training on domestic violence issues and engaging in community dialogue to change social norms that promote violence in intimacy.
We help provide diapers for over twenty babies and toddlers who are currently at the shelter.  Like most social service organizations who work with diaper age children, Safe Place is in need of larger size diapers.  If you would would like to send funds to help Safe Place, simply click here.  You can also shop Amazon for diapers here and they ship directly to Austin Diaper Bank.  We are so happy to be able to diaper the babies and toddlers at Safe Place.  Your donations have an immediate impact for this important organization.
