This rating was published 06/01/2019 and includes data from FY2018, the most recent 990 received at that time.

Our mission statement, educating to end the cycle of domestic violence and save lives, speaks to our commitment and focus to help children that are victims and witnesses of domestic violence to navigate a difficult path. In the late 1990's, Joe and Ali Torre attended a life-changing seminar that proved to be a turning point for Joe, prompting him to begin speaking openly about his childhood experience with domestic violence.

Growing more aware that millions of children live with violence in their homes, Joe and Ali were moved to act. As they gained the understanding and knowledge that too many of our children are afraid, unaware of how to ask for help, and suffer the same debilitating fear that he and his family had, Joe and Ali founded the Safe At Home Foundation in 2002, and since then we have reached over 60,000 youth, with 13 sites that are located in New York, California, and New Jersey.
