Safe Place Ministries provides biblically based training, truth and support to those impacted by abuse. Christ was not afraid to enter into the most challenging brokenness and with that confidence, neither are we.

From the Director

We’re experiencing a beautiful spring here in Idaho complete with the typical inconsistent weather. The freedom to walk outdoors and enjoy sunlight is even sweeter with thoughts of where we were one year ago. 
So much of the unexpected during this past year was not our preference. For example, canceling the benefit banquet two years in a row and physical distancing from our clients. However, we can say God has been faithful to bring us through another year. His nature is always consistent regardless of how the world changes. 
One change we are thrilled about is starting to see faces again. Now we want to take every advantage of connecting more consistently with you, our community. 
We are asking you to respond and let us know what kinds of topics you would find meaningful. You can also engage with us online, via email, or phone the office at 208.323.2169.
To help you know a little bit more about us, in this newsletter you’ll find information about the intention behind some of our practices. We plan to host classes again soon, so watch for more information in the future.
And cling to the consistency of God!

Privacy and Dignity

Occasionally we might share a note from a current or previous client. We don’t solicit feedback from our clients, so when we receive “love notes” we know they are truly heartfelt. We treasure them and know that others love to read them because we are often encouraged to share more stories. 

There can be a thin line between rejoicing in recovery stories and using feedback for self promotion. We try to err on the side of not sharing because we do not want to self promote if it compromises the privacy and dignity of our clients. For us, it is enough that God sees.

This is also why we do not have a strong social media presence, to protect our clients. 

Another way this manifests is how we stagger appointments. Unless it is unavoidable, we never want a situation where a client sees someone else they know. We also avoid this by not allowing drop-ins, onsite volunteers, or offering emergency appointments. However, this is also because we are not an emergency facility. 

What we are interested in, is educating our community about the many different kinds of relationships and situations that cause pain and how to navigate through difficult times. We also want to build people so that they can support others with the same dignity and privacy we all need and deserve.
A Few Ways to Support Us

  • Pray for us.
  • Talk about us. The connection of community is still the best way to find support and nothing compares to sincere word of mouth. Please share about Safe Place Ministries with leaders, neighbors or over coffee with a friend. 
  • Take a class, or host a class with your group.
  • You can also contribute to Safe Place Ministries without additional cost if you already shop somewhere that rewards with charity support.

Amazon Smile

We are always looking for ways to assist and bless clients and their families. Some ways you can help is by providing gift cards for haircuts, fuel, oil changes or a quick dinner such as Subway or Pizza. You would be amazed what a blessing it is for clients to be able to treat their kids to a quick dinner and time at the park while they are experiencing times of crisis!
