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.
SAFE is Charity of the Month for Rising Tide Market
As part of its ongoing Charity of the Month program, Glen Cove’s own Rising Tide Natural Market is set to donate $483 to SAFE. Rising Tide chose SAFE as its September Charity of the Month, a program supported by its Bring Your Own Bag initiative. The BYOB/Charity of the Month program allows Rising Tide to change habits and save trees, while helping the local nonprofits that provide vital services to our neighbors in need.
Rising Tide is thrilled to be able to support SAFE’s mission to provide alcohol and drug prevention services to the Glen Cove community. Rising Tide owner/founder Jerry Farrell will be presenting SAFE with a check on Thursday, October 19 at 10:30 a.m. at the SAFE office.
