Courage for the Journey

SafeJourney is saving lives with its free, confidential, 24-hour, hospital-based domestic abuse advocacy program. Instead of wondering why you stay, we offer respect for your timeline. Instead of judgment, we offer options. Instead of hopelessness, we offer legal, financial, counseling, and shelter resources. We work with you to develop a safety plan, and help you feel empowered, believed, and encouraged. This is not your fault.

The Support That Keeps You Safe

  • SafeJourney’s entire 7-day-a-week, 24-hour advocacy program is provided by volunteers. A caring, trained volunteer advocate—not a recording—is at the customer’s bedside within 30 minutes of a referral.
  • Advocates develop safety plans with you, which includes: safe housing and shelter referral, legal remedies, referrals for restraining orders through the court system, documentation of injury, support groups, individual counseling, community resources, and ongoing support and education.
  • SafeJourney is one of a few domestic abuse programs that provide after-care or follow-up support.
  • You do not have to be a patient to access SafeJourney. All our services are free and confidential.
  • The significant number our clients ultimately leave their abusive relationship and live a life free of violence. But you cannot do it alone. SafeJourney is here to help each step of the way.

There is no holding me back now. Only wish I would have left a lot sooner.

Review

Everyone I came in contact with at North Memorial had very positive comments about SafeJourney, from the nurses to the doctor and even the uniformed guard I spoke with. They recognize the advocate and seem to be very impressed with SafeJourney.

She was so thankful I believed her. I asked if I could hug her and she held on. She told me she felt an angel was sent tonight.

It’s amazing how invested the women in group are to each other. It is so nice to see them grow and change, as well as help them through setbacks. Thanks so much for this wonderful opportunity.
