Nonprofit Reinforces Mission with New Logo, Name
Formerly known as SafeHomes of Augusta, SafeHomes Inc. is a nonprofit organization in Augusta, GA that has been providing shelter to victims of domestic violence since the late 1970s. To better reflect its mission and purpose, the nonprofit has changed its logo and name. Meghann Eppenbrock, spokeswoman, said SafeHomes of Augusta was shortened to SafeHomes Inc. because the non-profit actually serves 10 counties in Georgia.
The name change also comes with a remodeling of the SafeHomes’ shelter for victims of domestic violence. Eppenbrock said the shelter was able to provide basic amenities, but community donations and volunteer work have transformed it into a friendlier and more welcoming home.
