Welcome to Teller Safe Harbor

Teller Safe Harbor has been organized to build or renovate a house to be used as a safe house, in Teller County Colorado. The goal is to provide victims of domestic abuse, a safe place to escape the violence and make plans for the future.

Right Now in Teller County Colorado

The need of having a safe house in Teller County is constantly growing:


Law enforcement gets 175-200 reported cases of family violence and sexual assault each year. At least the same amount go unreported.


Friends and Family often do not understand.


Even today, victims here must look outside our community to find safety.


Our victims must leave local jobs, schools, etc. if seeking safety elsewhere.


Staying with an abuser often seems to be their only choice.

Accomplishments

We are a registered non-profit corporation in the State of Colorado and a federally recognized

501C(3) charitable organization.

We have an active, involved Board of Directors-all with close ties to this community

We have gained the support for our efforts from local law enforcement and representatives from the mental health and faith communities.
