Joe Torre Safe at Home was established in 2002 by ali and Joe Torre. Safe at Home focuses on youth who have been exposed to domestic violence, child abuse, teen dating abuse, and sexual assault. Safe at Home's mission is to educate to end The cycle of domestic violence and save lives.according to The cdc, violence is an urgent public health problem. From infants to The elderly, it affects people in all stages of life and can lead to a lifetime of physical, emotional, and economic problems. Nearly one in five children have been exposed to physical intimate partner violence in their lifetime. Exposure to violence and abuse as children can have devastating, long term effects. Safe at Home believes that with education and support children and youth can be an integral part of The solution.by providing resources and support, young people can cope with their trauma and find hope, healing, and empowerment for their futures. Our model is unique because it provides both clinical intervention and prevention services. We establish a Safe room at our locations - known as margaret's place, named after Joe Torre's mother. Theserooms are staffed by a full-time, master's-level therapist. In this setting, we have group and individualcounseling for young people experiencing trauma; hold workshops for teachers to build a safer schoolenvironment; hold workshops for parents to make homes and communities stronger; raise awareness onhow to prevent violence; and empower young people to become advocates and leaders. The problem:the landmark adverse childhood experiences (ace) study httpswwwcdcgovviolencepreventiona... demonstrated that exposure to abuse and violence as children can have devastating, long-term effects. Examples of adverse childhood experiences include verbal, physical, and/or sexual abuse; domestic violence; and family dysfunction.without support, youth with these experiences are at greater risk for a variety of issues, both asadolescents and as adults. This includes greater risk of mental health issues, including depression,anxiety, and suicidal ideation; greater risk of chronic disease, including cancer, diabetes, stroke, and highblood pressure; greater risk of self-harm and risky behaviors, including substance abuse; and decreasededucational and occupational potential.with such exposures, intervention is critical. In fact, The adverse childhood experiences identifiedcertain protective factors that can decrease or even prevent these negative outcomes. These protectivefactors include, building resilience, self-esteem, positive coping skills, strong support networks, a sense ofhope, and a supportive relationship with a trusting adult.
