Established in 1977, Safe Nest is the oldest, largest, and primary provider of domestic violence services in Southern Nevada. To implement its mission of being a leading advocate in ending domestic abuse through providing confidential and comprehensive services while promoting the highest respect and dignity for clients, Safe Nest focuses on four core services: shelter, counseling, advocacy, and prevention/education. Safe Nest’s shelter program provides emergency 24-hour intake, 24-hour hotline services, 24-hour access to Emergency Protection Orders (the sole access point in Clark County, NV), case management, employment counseling, housing assistance, support groups, sobriety support, parenting training, child counseling, and life-skills classes, in addition to providing for safety and basic needs. The counseling program includes individual and group therapy sessions conducted in Las Vegas, Boulder City, and Mesquite, NV. Counseling is available for victims, perpetrators, and teens; professionals trained in play therapy provide children’s counseling. Grief counseling is available for those who have lost loved ones to domestic violence. The advocacy program provides counselors both on-site and in the field to assist clients traversing the legal system. Advocates at Family Court and the District Attorney’s Office orient victims to court processes; help prepare Victim Impact Statements; develop safety planning; assist with obtaining protection orders; provide referrals; accompany victims to court; and partner with attorneys, law enforcement, prosecutors, judges, Child Protective Services and other entities as needed. The prevention/education program provides dating violence prevention classes in the schools, conflict resolution training for youth, mentoring programs for teens, information and resources for faith-based communities, culturally-specific outreach to at-risk populations, and training for professionals who identify and refer victims.
