Safe Port Initiative

To better serve victims of human trafficking, systematic persecution, and other atrocities whose experiences have been so traumatic that traditional limited-term recovery programs will not suffice, Safe Port Initiative is developing a residential multi-campus sanctuary that will offer survivors all necessary services in a safe, welcoming environment for as long as needed.

Our stunning recovery campus is nestled in the Appalachian foothills of New York's southern tier, offering a secluded, safe environment for optimal healing. Once survivors graduate from the New York campus, they will be invited to live on our transitional campus, which is housed in a historic 1886 estate in the Pittsburgh suburbs.  Here, they will have the opportunity to begin attending community college on a Safe Port Scholarship and to participate in advanced vocational or entrepreneurship training.

100% of the donations raised through this page of our Web site will be used toward the development of the campus!

Welcome to our campus - a work in progress!

SPI's Residential Recovery Program

Add your name to the Tree of Knowledge mural in the lobby of our Distance Education Center!  You can reserve your commemorative leaf on the permanent wall mural with a donation of just $25.

Safe Port Initiative's capital campaign is underway and will continue until our residential recovery campus is fully developed. We have 5 buildings to date with 8 more to go. Your donation of any amount will make a world of difference for our survivors!


Walk beside our survivors through every step of their recovery by having your name or 32-character message engraved on a 12"x12" walkway paver on our residential recovery campus. Your paver will be automatically reserved with a donation of $250. 



Be remembered for generations to come by having your name or 60-character message engraved on the backrest of a 4' wood and wrought iron bench on our recovery campus. Your commemorative bench will be reserved with a donation of $500.
