Safe Passage Expands Vision to End Pervasive Domestic Violence and Abuse Cycle with New “Time2Heal” Initiative for Teens, Children, Women and Men
Safe Passage, a Van Nuys, California-based nonprofit organization dedicated to breaking the cycle of domestic abuse with programs that help heal and empower women and their children to live transformed, safe and productive lives, today announced a new initiative for all victims of abuse, shame, fear and anger. “Time2Heal” will be officially launched at a press conference Thursday, June 7, from 11:30 a.m. to 1:00 p.m., at the Beverly Hills Women’s Club (1700 Chevy Chase Drive, Beverly Hills, California 90210).
The press conference will feature compelling presentations on the toll all forms of devastation and violence currently are taking in Los Angeles and the outlook for the future by medical professionals, therapists, local government officials and Trish Steele, founder and chief executive officer of Safe Passage.
“Emotional pain and violence are serious public health problems that affect people of all ages and stages of life – regardless of race or color, from infant to elderly, all gender,” Steele said. “In the past 18 years, Safe Passage has achieved a 95 percent success rate, which translates into the transformed lives of more than 1,800 women and their children, through our holistic approach to healing the bodies, souls and minds of the women who seek our help to escape the bonds of abusive and violent relationships for themselves and their children. We are introducing Time2Heal to address those needs for our whole community – teens, children, women and men.”
