The Safe Shelter Collaborative increases
the number of available beds and streamlines
the process for finding them.
When an individual needs shelter, a professional responsible for placing survivors sends one notice that reaches participating regional agencies. The notice includes enough non-identifying case information so an agency can respond with a placement.
When there isn’t available shelter and the agency has protocols in place to use hotels as emergency alternative housing, a case manager can send an alert to potential donors via SafeNight, a free downloadable mobile app, to pay for a hotel stay.
Expand your capacity
Agency staff have opportunities to learn from their peers and from experts in the field during free webinars on topics such as using hotels for emergency shelter and expanding services to support survivors of human trafficking.

The Safe Shelter Collaborative
Sheltering agencies are forming collaboratives across the United States and using the Safe Shelter Collaborative to fund safe emergency shelter when hotel stays are the best option.
Collaboratives are forming. If you see a region your shelter should join, or you'd like more information on creating a new collaborative in your area, please get in touch with us.

please get in touch. The Safe Shelter Collaborative is currently free for qualified agencies. If you are a 501(c)(3) public charity, a tribal organization, or a government agency that provides support to survivors of human trafficking or domestic or sexual violence, you may be eligible to join the Safe Shelter Collaborative. All participating agencies complete a vetting process to verify that they provide sheltering services. If you aren't quite ready to apply and have questions for us,
