People affected by violence need to talk to someone that understands. S.A.F.E., Inc. knows that this is a critical need in our community. We provide free counseling services to victims of domestic violence & sexual assault. This also includes friends and family members that are helping to support people who have been hurt. Counseling services can be provided in person or over the telephone. Please contact our counselor, Kristen Adams, if you need more information. Call (662) 841-9138 to set up an appointment. You can call to set up an appointment any time, but hours for direct counseling are 9 AM until 3PM. Each appointment will last one hour.
If you have experienced intimate partner/domestic violence or sexual violence, the Court Advocate for S.A.F.E. Inc., is available daily to provide emotional support and to accompany clients into the courtroom (which can be an intimidating place for victims) for the purpose of obtaining an Order of Protection. S.A.F.E., Inc. Court Advocate can provide you with information about domestic abuse, the court procedures, and the use and limitations of protective orders. Referrals to the Legal Department of the Mississippi Coalition Against Domestic Violence can be made for a free consultation with a lawyer to obtain information about legal rights or options for divorce and child custody. The Court Advocate can also accompany clients in filing criminal charges, interviews with the District Attorney or grand jury. Survivors are offered support throughout their court experience. If you need help or know of anyone that needs help, call at (662) 841-9138
