Safenet Services has the tools to help you break free from domestic violence.
Safenet Services Mission is to create a safe, healthy and supportive environment for women and families healing from the consequences of domestic violence, sexual assault and stalking.
Domestic Violence Shelter
Our shelter is a safe haven for women and children experiencing abuse. We will provide food, clothing, and other necessities. At minimum, a 30-day stay is offered to victims and their children. Additionally, our staff works with our residents to help break the cycle of abuse, and to create healthy and self-sufficient futures. Clear and attainable goals are set and support is provided to help ensure success.
We have three licensed therapists available to help victims of domestic abuse and sexual assault in an individual or group setting. Some of our group counseling sessions include:
- Choices – For women who have experienced domestic violence
- Children’s Services – Individual or family counseling for children up to age 18 who have experienced verbal, physical, mental, or emotional violence
- Special Sessions – Safety planning, parenting, bullying, teen dating, and financial empowerment
How does counseling help?
- Identify negative thought patterns that contribute to feelings of worthlessness, and to develop a more positive outlook.
- Explore behaviors that create or maintain problems.
- Regain a sense of control.
- Learn ways to encourage support from family and friends.
- Discover personal strengths and how to use those strengths to grow stronger in other areas.
Protective Order Office
We provide domestic abuse victims with trained court advocates who assist with the filing of paperwork and prepare for court hearings. We strive to make it easier for victims to obtain any available legal protection.
Two locations are available for victims:
Court Advocacy Program
Our Court Advocates assist in filing protective orders, safety planning, emotional support, and helping locate resources. In Rogers County, advocates are located on the second floor of the court house. They can be contacted at 918-923-4962. In Mayes County, protective order help is located at our satellite office at 118 N. Adair in Pryor. They can be reached at 918-825-0190.
Sexual Assault Advocacy Program
Our Sexual Assault Advocate provides support groups and helps with referrals. She also assists with hospital visits, legal proceedings and transportation services for participants.
Our Socio-Ecological Model Specialist (“SEM Specialist”) teaches a violence prevention curriculum for junior high and senior high schools in Rogers & Mayes Counties. For college students, tech school students, and community organizations, she can teach the “Bringing In the Bystander” curriculum. Call 918-341-1424 for more information or to have her visit your organization.
Our Empowerment Educator provides financial empowerment and employment enrichment classes to our shelter residents and outreach clients (non-shelter). Our goal is to locate stable jobs and affordable housing for our clients so that they can become self-sufficient, independent, and violence free.
Supervised Visitation Program
Discord between a child’s custodians can have a harmful effect on the welfare of the child. We offer fee-based supervised visitation and supervised exchanges of children to help limit the stress and arguments between parties.
The CHANGES program is a 52 week, fee-based program that focuses on changing the behavior of the perpetrator of domestic abuse. Lead by a Licensed Professional Counselor, CHANGES is a State Certified Batterers Intervention Program. This program educates the batterer on nondestructive ways of communicating to help break the cycle of abuse.
