The Mission Statement

“The mission of SafeHouse of the Desert’s Auxiliary Board is to provide opportunities
for volunteering with clients, by helping with fundraising, event planning and
marketing and furthering its mission as ambassadors in the community.”

Letter From Our Board President

‘It is an honor to serve on the Auxiliary Board for SafeHouse of the Desert.  This organization stands out for its integrity to its mission and the essential services it provides to the Coachella community.  As the only emergency shelter for youth ages 11-17 years in the Coachella Valley SafeHouse provides shelter and compassionate care for many who would otherwise be homeless.  I am impressed with the comprehensive level of life skills that the great staff of this agency focuses on for each client.
I have spent many years in Seattle with various social service organizations whose main mission was to help victims of domestic violence or other kinds of abuse.  And SafeHouse exemplifies a very high standard of care; such a comprehensive and collaborative system of care is extraordinary.  ‘
