Supporting  Women and Girls in Ravalli County

"The work of these women is far-reaching. They helped implement the first Aid for Mammography Fund and Colonoscopy Fund at Marcus Daly Memorial Hospital. Working with the Missoula YWCA in 1987, members opened their own homes to shelter women fleeing violence. This effort grew into SAFE in the Bitterroot, an organization providing emergency and long-term services to survivors of domestic and sexual violence."

Members of the Soroptimists educated themselves about the dynamics and effects of domestic violence and developed a network of safe  homes and an emergency hotline. This network, originally named Family Violence Services, ha grown into an organization, SAFE, that offers a variety of programs and activities designed to create a violence-free community.
