Welcome to the
Tuscaloosa SAFE Center
Every 98 seconds, someone across the country experiences sexual assault. Those who call West Alabama home are no exception.
Sexual assault knows no boundaries. It occurs in all communities, regardless of race, gender, age, sexual preference, or socioeconomic status. Rape and sexual assault are under-reported crimes. In fact, 63% of sexual assaults are never reported to the police. And only 6 out of every 1,000 perpetrators end up in prison.
After a sexual assault has occurred, survivors often do not know what to do or where to go. They need a safe place to land. The Tuscaloosa SAFE Center strives to be that place.
