Dancing Around Martin: SafeSpace

Cheree, Manager of Community Engagement, is Dancing Around Martin to highlight all of the organizations CSC funds with tax payer dollars to raise awareness of programs available right here in our backyard.

Cheree met with CEO of SafeSpace, Dr. Teresa Albizu, to recognize them as a provider that offers violence prevention education programming as well as safety, support, and education to victims of domestic violence while empowering them to create an independent life, free from violence.

CSCMC funds SafeSpace’s Y.O.U.R. (Youth Outreach Understanding Relationships) Program partnered with the Martin County School District. This program engages youth as a priority population to prevent youth from becoming either a victim or perpetrator of intimate partner violence. It teaches the next generation how to have healthy relationships.

SafeSpace offers much more than shelter for you to stay if fleeing an abusive relationship. They partner with several organizations, such as Tykes & Teens and House of Hope, to increase the positive impact and resources to families who are healing from mental and physical violence. If you, or someone you know, is experiencing domestic violence, SafeSpace is ready to help empower you to become independent and know your worth. Call the hotline today: 772-288-7023

Domestic Violence Awareness Month is October. Be on the lookout for CSCMC’s video highlighting SafeSpace’s Walk a Mile in Her Shoes virtual challenge event and check out their website for more information. This year, the in-person Walk a Mile in Her Shoes event will be held at the Stuart Air Show on 11/13/21 at 11:00am.

SafeSpace is yet another great provider proudly funded by CSCMC. Your tax dollars are at work, here in Martin County.

Thank you for all you do in our community with our youth and families.

September 25th, 2021, Cheree will be taking the Starstruck stage with her alumni partner Rachel Terlizzi, to support Martin County Healthy Start.
