Safe Nest has been an invaluable asset to Las Vegas’ community. As the city has grown, the need for assistance for victims of domestic violence has grown with it. County and state resources that offer aid are limited and in some cases, non-existent. Safe Nest is unique in the community as it offers a comprehensive range of counseling services as well as a much-needed shelter where victims can begin to plan the next steps of their lives in a safe and supportive environment. These services proved invaluable for a friend who felt she had few options while living with family members who had become emotionally destructive and increasingly, physically violent.
Nevada is a state that consistently ranks high in the number of domestic violence homicides annually and a disproportional number of victims of domestic violence . Safe Nest provides the needed shelter and safety for victims fleeing a violent relationship. While in shelter, the agency provides all basic needs including food, clothing and personal care items. Not all victims need shelter. Safe Nest also provides needed counseling, legal advocacy and case management for victims who still need assistance dealing with the aftermath of violent relationship.
Safe Nest is an United Way accredited agency. With 37 years of experience, Safe Nest is Southern Nevada ‘s leading authority regarding domestic violence issues and services.
