SAFV is located in the City and Borough of Sitka, Alaska, and serves Sitka, as well as the surrounding Southeast Alaska communities of Port Alexander, Kake, and Angoon.

SAFV has two main areas of work: advocacy and prevention. In our direct services work, SAFV’s advocates work closely with victims of violence to help them re-build their lives, free from violence. In prevention, SAFV’s specialists work to create systems and programs within our community that promote healthy relationships and respect in an effort to create a strong, thriving community where violence is outside the norm. Both advocacy and prevention are essential to ending violence within our community.
