About Donating

Your Dona­tions Help

Every child should feel Safe At Home®. For many chil­dren, home is not a place of com­fort, but instead a place of fear. Joe Torre knows that fear. He grew up in house­hold where he was afraid to go home in fear of his father’s rage and vio­lence towards his mother. It’s why he and his wife Ali started the Joe Torre Safe At Home® Foundation.

The Foundation’s mis­sion is edu­cat­ing to end the cycle of domes­tic vio­lence and save lives. Through aware­ness cam­paigns we strive to shed light on this mostly hid­den national tragedy. In order for com­mu­ni­ties to be able to sup­port vic­tims they need first to be edu­cated on the issue of abuse. To pre­vent the cycle of vio­lence from per­pet­u­at­ing into the next gen­er­a­tion, we must edu­cate and sup­port the chil­dren of today.

The Joe Torre Safe At Home® Foun­da­tion has insti­tuted a pro­gram called Margaret’s Place, named after Joe’s mother, in schools through­out New York, New Jer­sey and Cal­i­for­nia. It’s a com­pre­hen­sive pro­gram that pro­vides stu­dents with a safe room in their school. Stu­dents can meet with a pro­fes­sional coun­selor trained in domes­tic vio­lence inter­ven­tion and pre­ven­tion. One of Margaret’s Place’s core ini­tia­tives is to imple­ment a school-wide anti-violence cam­paign at each site. Build­ing a cohe­sive cul­ture of non­vi­o­lence in the school pro­vides stu­dents with mean­ing­ful oppor­tu­ni­ties for lead­er­ship and pro­motes social responsibility.
