We Did It!

Thanks to our generous supporters, we have accomplished the goal of raising $5

million for SafeSpace’s new permanent home!

Community members, businesses and foundations rallied behind this campaign to improve and

expand support for Columbia Gorge children and youth experiencing the trauma of abuse.

Thank you for your amazing support!

What’s Next For SafeSpace?

With fundraising complete for construction of the new building, we are focused now on raising

an additional $500,000 in 2024 to launch children’s wellness services in the new SafeSpace.

Investments in the Children’s Wellness Initiative will support onsite pediatric mental health

services on the top floor of the new SafeSpace.

Plans for the new SafeSpace Children’s Wellness Center respond to urgent regional need for

children’s mental health services. The new Children’s Wellness Center will specialize in mental

health support for children and youth impacted by the trauma of abuse, as well as those

needing treatment for depression, substance abuse, and ADHD.


The Children’s Wellness Initiative will help launch critically needed pediatric mental health services in the new SafeSpace.

Contributors will be recognized on the permanent campaign donor wall to be installed May 2024 and finalized April 2025.

Commitments of $2,000 or more may be pledged up to five years.
