Safe Journey


​Safe Journey has provided shelter and counseling services to victims of domestic violence, dating violence, and stalking in the Corry area for over thirty years.  Services are provided in an environment that promotes self-discovery, self-direction, change and growth and our vision is one which all women & children begin a new violence-free journey that leads the to a life of self-empowerment and self-efficacy with a 'can-do' attitude.  "With our vision...We can change the world".


Services are provided to residential and non-residential clients and include a 24-hour hotline, safe shelter, individual and support group counseling for women & children, information & referrals, legal advocacy and transportation and court accompaniment to file protection orders.  We provide these services at our outreach sites that include Corry Counseling, Corry Library, and Country Foods.  Prevention programs are provided to children and youth in shelter and in the Corry Area School District.  Recently, self-development classes have been added for clients and include Self Esteem, Religion and Domestic Violence and Beyond Anger and Violence.  Training and presentations are provided to community organizations and to professionals who come in contact with victims.


This past year, our most signifiant change has been to change domestic violence counseling form the culture of crisis service provision to an effective Trauma-Informed Service to assist them in recovering form the traumatic effects of domestic violence ad other lifetime abuse, and rebuilding their lives.  We now better provide an empowering therapeutic environment that victims need to recover, heal, and find their inner strengths.  The strength-based approach included techniques that counselors use to help clients develop coping skills and emotional wellness to re-build efficacy and personal control.  The Trauma Informed Services also include A Woman's Way through 12 Steps that is a Drug and Alcohol program for woman experiencing abuse in their life.
