Project Safeguard

Project Safeguard, founded in 1981 and incorporated in 1984 as a non-profit organization, specializes in domestic violence legal advocacy services and social change programs.  The major goals here are the prevention of violence and intimidation by providing access to legal options for women and children experiencing domestic violence and to affect social change through community education as well as the implementation of progressive policies and procedures within various systems.  These services include, but are not limited to, protection order and divorce/custody clinics, legal advocacy and court accompaniment, safety planning, attorney referrals, and education about victim rights.  Project Safeguard has also developed CourtWatch and Fatality Review - two unique programs designed to foster statewide social change.  By providing free legal clinics, advocacy in the legal system, and community education, Project Safeguard empowers women who have been abused to navigate the legal system.  For further information about Project Safeguard, including how you can get involved, please visit our website,
