Who We Serve
Black women residing or living in Washington DC's Ward 7 and Ward 8.
We define Black women as encompassing African women and women of the African Diaspora/ African Descent.
The Safe Sisters Circle is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit that provides free culturally specific, holistic, and trauma-based services to Black women survivors of domestic violence and/or sexual assault primarily living in Washington, DC's Wards 7 and 8.
The Safe Sisters Circle’s clients will participate in an intensive housing, healing, and skills development program that will help them create a healthy, independent, and successful life path for themselves. The Safe Sisters Circle will provide these services along with addressing the various barriers our clients face as a result of their past trauma as well as our clients’ disadvantages based on their cultural, ethnic, social, and/or sexual identities.
The Safe Sisters Circle is rooted in our belief that there is value in having an organization focusing on providing a holistic approach for services, using a community based model for young Black women that is run primarily by women of color. The Safe Sisters Circle applies women of color’s racial and gender responsive lens to directly guide the decisions of our organization, its programs, procedures, outreach, and treatment to fight domestic violence and sexual abuse.
