Description of Agency
Offers support and services that promote healing, hope and opportunity to adults, youth, and children who have been impacted by domestic or dating violence.
To end violence against adults, youth, and children.
Originally named Boulder County Safehouse, SPAN began providing services in 1979 in a shelter facility that could house only 12 residents. A staff of 37 now provides comprehensive, culturally-relevant services for victims of interpersonal violence, and promotes nonviolence and social justice through violence prevention education, specialized community training and technical assistance programs, and anti-violence/anti-oppression coalition building with individuals, agencies, and institutions. The name Boulder County Safehouse was changed in 2004 to reflect the organization's integrated approach to ending interpersonal violence through a human rights and social justice framework.
