To become a Safe Place through PurpleOne, one person (or a few) participates in the half-day PurpleOne training to learn how to RECOGNIZE. RESPOND.REFER. survivors of domestic violence. After training, you can apply to be SafePlace.  Once approved, we provide your organization with a PurpleOne Dot to place at the entrance of your location and referral materials to distribute when you need to.
