We consider the Domestic Violence Center of Santa Clarita a “Safe Space.”
A Safe Space is a place that anyone can relax and be able to fully express themselves without fear of being made to feel uncomfortable, unwelcome, or unsafe. This expression could be on account of biological sex, race/ethnicity, sexual orientation, gender identity or expression, cultural background, religious affiliation, age, or physical or mental ability.
The following core values guide the way we work and the relationships we build in our Safe Space:
We practice compassionate treatment of others without regard to age, race, ethnicity, national origin, gender, disability, income, sexual orientation, marital status, politics, or religion. We believe in the inherent worth of all people and in honest, open communication.
We stand for an environment in which individuals can make decisions and move forward with their lives free from bias, coercion and fear.
We are committed to overcoming cultural, geographic and other barriers to share our expertise and extend our services into every corner of the community.ar.
We uphold the right of all individuals to be free from harm and to enjoy relationships based on fairness and trust.
