SafeNight is a mobile app that alerts individual donors to fund hotel rooms when local domestic violence shelters are full. Agencies use a web-based tool to send a request for emergency funding and donors receive an opportunity to pay via SafeNight.

Anyone Can Give A Room. Here’s How:
Register and become a member of the community.
Once you’ve downloaded SafeNight and registered, you become a member of the community. A community that believes we can use the resources at our disposal to make change. A community that believes everyone deserves a violence free life.
Select your local organization and connect to it.
After you’ve registered, you can connect to a verified domestic violence service organization. These organizations provide shelter and other services to individuals in need. Once you connect, you will receive requests to sponsor a hotel room when there is an urgent need and no available space at a shelter.
Sponsor a hotel stay.
When the organization you are supporting needs help, you will see a notification on your phone that alerts you of an individual or family who needs a safe night. By agreeing to sponsor a hotel stay, you give someone a chance to receive additional support in a time of need.
