Dust off that tuxedo and don’t forget the corsage, Mondays Dark, Vegas’ most anticipated fundraising event, sheds light on domestic violence with a prom-themed evening to remember as they honor Safe Nest, Nevada’s largest and most comprehensive charity devoted solely to domestic violence issues.
A beloved and respected charity, Safe Nest provides services such as advocacy, counseling, prevention, and shelter to abuse victims and their families and empowers them toward self-sufficiency in a violence-free setting. Guests are encouraged to bring a “prom date” for an evening full of charity and cheer, a silent auction, and the best entertainment in Las Vegas, all while raising awareness on domestic violence issues and giving back to the local community.
A problem that impacts the safety and well-being of individuals, families and communities throughout Southern Nevada, domestic violence can take on multiple forms including physical, emotional and sexual abuse, financial control and social isolation. It affects all communities, regardless of socioeconomic status, race or religion. Safe Nest serves battered women (or men), children or teens affected by family violence, adolescents in violent dating relationships, offending partners, family members or significant others impacted by the violence, at-risk individuals, and the community at large by offering a variety of programming and services including counseling, crisis intervention, individual and group therapy, residential services, protection order assistance and employment/life-skill classes. Safe Nest aims to put a stop to all immediate abuse and break the cycle of abuse for generations to come.
Established in 1977, Safe Nest is Nevada’s largest and most comprehensive non-profit agency devoted solely to domestic violence issues. Serving approximately 43,000 people annually, Safe Nest’s programs include a 24-hour confidential shelter, a 24-hour hotline and protection order services, counseling, advocacy, court assistance, and prevention education.
