Safer Foundation in the Quad Cities

Safer has been helping reduce recidivism in the Quad Cities for more than three decades.

Safer began serving the Quad Cities area in 1976, when it opened an employment services office in Rock Island, Illinois, followed by an office in Davenport, Iowa, two years later. In 1998, Safer began serving court-involved youth, opening a second office in Davenport, with a similar program serving Rock Island youth opening in 2000. 

In April 2014, Safer launched the IMPACT Program, serving Iowa’s Scott County Youth.
