SAFE Alliance Collaboration

VW has signed the SAFE Pledge – which provides a roadmap for organizations to recognize the signs of abuse and domestic violence, and to provide support and intervention.

At Vela Wood, we believe that we can be an active part of ending family violence and supporting those affected by it. To do that, we pledge to:

  • Provide resources within our workplace and our community that will raise awareness about family violence, help people recognize potentially abusive or violent situations, and offer support safely.
  • Identify two representatives to receive SAFE Pledge Training from SAFE, so that they can effectively develop, review, and implement policies that support employees who may be affected by family violence.
  • Create and publish comprehensive company policies that support employees who may be affected by family violence.
  • Work in partnership with SAFE to support their mission to stop abuse for everyone.
