A Safe Place

Outreach Specialist Tiffany Toribio with A Safe Place visited with the Rotary Club of North Chicago today.

A Safe Place provides information and training about domestic violence to students, professionals and the general community, as well as shelter for victims of domestic abuse..

 
Members of North Chicago Rotary presented Tiffany with a donation for A Safe Place as a token of appreciation for visiting with us today.  As a note, Lake County has a population in excess of 700,000 people and A Safe Place is the only program in the entire county that deals exclusively with domestic violence.
