A Public Health Approach to Overdose Prevention in Philadelphia
Safehouse is a privately funded, 501(c)(3) tax-exempt Pennsylvania nonprofit corporation. Our mission is to save lives by providing a range of overdose prevention services.
The leaders and organizers of Safehouse are motivated by the Judeo-Christian beliefs ingrained in us from our religious schooling, our devout families and our practices of worship. At the core of our faith is the principle that preservation of human life overrides any other considerations.
Safehouse is working with community partners to find a suitable location(s) to deliver those services.
