In August of 2008, thanks to the hard work and dedication of many individuals and organizations, Mayor Coleman's vision was finally achieved as Bridges to Safety celebrated its grand opening.
Bridges to Safety is a new comprehensive, centrally-located domestic abuse service center in the City of Saint Paul that offers victims, including children, access to protection, culturally relevant services and support from the criminal and civil justice system, advocacy, legal aid and social service providers. Through Bridges to Safety, victims experience respect, safety, and security, and perpetrators are held accountable for their actions to the highest degree possible. This center connects and leverages the myriad of services available for adult and child victims of domestic violence, increases provider capacity, and closes existing gaps in service.
Bridges to Safety is located in Room 140 City Hall, 15 West Kellogg Boulevard, Saint Paul, MN 55102. The center is open 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Monday through Friday and may be reached by phone at (651) 266-9901.
