Who We Are

Mission & History

The mission of Fearless! Hudson Valley, Inc. (formerly known as Safe Homes of Orange County) is to build an informed, just, and accountable society so all people can experience supportive and safe relationships free from abuse, exploitation, and oppression.  

We do this by education, prevention, advocacy, and providing comprehensive services, including shelter, to victims and survivors of interpersonal violence, human trafficking and sexual violence, and other types of crime victimization. 


Fearless! envisions being the leading authority on interpersonal abuse and violence, collaborating with other agents of change in dismantling inter-sectional individual and systemic oppression. 


Freedom  safety, dignity, respect
Survivor-Centered autonomy, agency, confidentiality, compassion
Equality anti-oppressive, intersectional, equity
Collaborative education, prevention
Accountability commitment to all


We were founded in 1986 over a kitchen table by people who wanted to make a difference. We now are the only private, not-for-profit agency in Orange County, NY dedicated to assisting survivors of domestic violence, teen dating violence, and human trafficking by providing free and confidential services.
