About SAIF's Programs & Services

We provide services to those who have experienced and/or witnessed family violence and abuse. We do not discriminate based on gender, race, orientation, income or disability. We do our best to accommodate all those in our service area who come seeking support, advocacy, and/or education. 

We accept referrals from other organizations, medical professionals as well as individuals calling on behalf of themselves or a loved one. See below for our service area.

Please note, our intakes are not conducted everyday. When you call or email us, we schedule a 20 minute pre-screen over the phone with one of our clinical team. That may be followed by a 1 hour in person intake (scheduled with clinical staff). 

For education and community outreach programs, the best thing to do is email program staff to book or to learn more.


If you are looking for immediate/24 hour crisis resources for your situation, please check out the Info & Resources tab. ​

We do not accept
walk ins

With a small team, we are simply not staffed to meet the needs of drop in clients. Please call or email to make an appointment with an intake worker. Thank you.

Appointments to access our services

The best and most direct way to access our services is to call or email us. We do require informed consent which we share with you during our intake process.
