SafeHouse Center is staying up-to-date with information from the Washtenaw County Health Department, State of Michigan and the Center for Disease Control and we will continue to take steps to best prioritize the needs of survivors while following the recommendations of public officials.

If you need support at any time, please call our 24/7 helpline at (734) 995-5444.


Although each survivor’s experience is unique, it can be especially helpful to talk to others who have been or are going through situations similar to your own.  The groups provide a safe environment as well as support and healing from the abuse you have experienced in your life.

Like all SHC services, the groups are free and confidential.  We will make every effort to provide childcare on site for children 3 years old and up.
