Nonprofit of the Month: Safe Journey (Union City, PA)

As the month of February marks the 11th year of National Teen Dating Violence Awareness Month, we would like to welcome Safe Journey as HBT Digital’s February Nonprofit of the Month. Located in Union City, PA (about two hours north of Pittsburgh), Safe Journey is a nonprofit that provides online and face-to-face counseling for victims of domestic violence and training on how and when to respond to domestic violence situations.

Through different campaigns and events, this organization offers help to those in need of help from domestic violence. 

Purple One is a campaign that was introduced by Safe Journey to empower communities, victims of domestic violence, and others who are affected. This campaign is a soon-to-be nonprofit that will branch off of Safe Journey. Purple One takes initiative by: 

  • Training community members and organizations to recognize, respond to and refer victims of domestic violence
  • Certifying organizations as Safe Places for Domestic Violence Victims
  • Empowering victims of domestic violence to seek help at a SafePlace or local domestic violence shelter
  • Educating the community on the prevalence of domestic violence in communities through multimedia messages

We are especially eager to be supporting Safe Journey and Purple One because of the impact of domestic violence in Pittsburgh and its surrounding areas. There are between 960,000 and 3,000,000 cases each year in the United States. Many of those go unreported. By supporting this organization, you become part of the decline of domestic violence in Pennsylvania.

Special shoutout to our all-star intern, Ethan Corbin, who has worked with Purple One on its social media platforms and website!
