Wilson’s World: Visiting Safe Passages in Rock Hill

ROCK HILL, S.C. – Wilson was in Rock Hill, South Carolina today to visit Safe Passages.  The organization offers support services to families living in abuse so they can make changes in their lives and eliminate violence. They offer the services for those in York, Chester, Lancaster and Union County in South Carolina.

Wilson was joined by Jada Charley, executive director of Safe Passage to talk about the many services the organization offers for victims and survivors of domestic violence, sexual trauma and child abuse.  The Child Advocacy Center of York County is also a part of Safe Passage.  The CAC is aimed at keeping children from being re-victimized.

There are many opportunities to volunteer and help Safe Passage.  People can volunteer to help at Safe Passage and also to spearhead drives to collect items as simple as socks, diapers and laundry detergent and as important as no longer needed cell phones to be used for domestic abuse victims.

Find out more about Safe Passage and how to help at their website safepassagesc.org.

Winthrop University in Rock Hill works closely with Safe Passage through their Department of Social Work and their Center of Career and Civic Engagement.
