CHALLENGE #37-2021 

Safe Space 

Butte, Montana 

Safe Space, Inc. began as a grass roots movement in the early 1970's by local women to address the needs in the area. Out of this endeavor, Safe Space was born and began addressing the complex needs of domestic violence and sexual assault survivors. Community education and awareness campaigns provide clients with the tools needed to break the inter-generational cycles of violence, and helps in recognizing that control of their lives.
