NOTE: Based on concerns raised by stakeholders, SafeHouse Center believes it is important to address the following. Currently, there is a candidate running for the Washtenaw County Prosecutor’s office, who has indicated that he has met with or otherwise has SafeHouse Center’s support. SafeHouse Center has not met with this candidate to discuss his candidacy. Moreover, SafeHouse Center is a 501(c)(3) and cannot support or oppose any candidate for elective public office. As such, any insinuation that SafeHouse supports or endorses any campaign is false.
