About


We've developed a series of security guides for domestic violence victims and shelters. We have a complete security guide for both hidden and public shelters, and a security guide to keep those in a domestic violence situation. It's important information that we need to get out as far and wide as possible. To do that, we need your help.

Based on the information in the guides, we need to create awareness material that can convey information that they need to know. Reminder posters for the shelter staff. Guides and flyers for their residents, reinforcing what they need to know and do while in the shelter and after they leave. Also, information that domestic violence victims need, when they need it. Brief guides that can be posted in libraries, clinic waiting rooms, laundromats, bathrooms- anywhere where someone can see it when they need it, and so they can know where to go for more information. And maybe, once they know how to stay safe, they'll have the confidence to start planning to leave.

This is an opportunity to directly impact someone's life. There's information they need right now- let's help them find it.

About Operation: Safe Escape

By some reports, 85% of domestic violence homicides occur after the victim has decided to leave their abuser. This is a dangerous time, and fortunately many resources exist to keep them safe.

What's missing, unfortunately, is the security layer. That is, how to properly apply Operations Security (OPSEC) to hide the victim's intent to leave. That would keep a lot of people safe and help reduce that number.

Operation: Safe Escape teaches shelters and victims how to identify the behaviors and actions that would tip off the abuser to the fact that they're trying to leave and help reduce the risk until they're safely away.

About OSPA

The Operations Security Professional's Association (OSPA) is a 501c3 non-profit organization that provides security awareness and training to a diverse audience that includes schools, government / military, domestic violence centers, private sector entities and more.
