Safe Embrace helps survivors of domestic and sexual violence

By  | 

RENO, Nev. (KOLO) - December 18:

Safe Embrace offers services to survivors of domestic and sexual violence, whether that violence is current or from the past.

Its walk-in shelter is at 780 E. Lincoln Way in Sparks, and provides emergency services including meals, clothing and therapy.

But like most non-profits, it relies on the community's involvement to help provide everyday necessities.

"General house donations, when people are cleaning out their houses. Maybe you got something for Christmas you don't necessarily like. Those things mean so much to our clients; they mean so much to us that our community supports us."

Safe Embrace is also grateful for volunteers, who, with advocates, staff its 24-hour crisis line. Someone is always there to answer the call for help. The number is 775-322-3466.
