SAFE was established to combine the strengths of the public and private sectors in the community to provide alcohol and drug prevention services.
This organization is the only certified substance abuse prevention agency in Glen Cove, emphasizing substance abuse intervention and education.
SAFE continues to provide exceptionally high quality prevention programs in Glen Cove. It firmly believes in coordinating, communicating and cooperating with the agencies in all programs it develops. SAFE utilizes its organizational skills to facilitate the efforts, energies and ideas of community groups. It will continue its efforts as long as the need exists.
SAFE, Inc. is a not for profit organization that was incorporated as a 501 (c) 3 prevention agency in 1982. SAFE does not charge a fee for its services. Additional funding is sought through grant writing, private donation, local government and fund raising.
Please take a moment to take our brief, anonymous 10-question survey. The SAFE Glen Cove Coalition created the survey to determine whether or not residents of Glen Cove would like mental health and substance abuse counseling services in the City, especially for youth between the ages of 5-17. The survey will be used as a means to apply for funding for these services. Thank you for taking the time to participate!
