Our Mission

ISSF LogoOur Mission

International Safe Shelter Foundation (ISSF) was founded as a tax exempt organization in 2012.   Our Mission is to empower shelters in Latin America that serve abused women and children through financial coordination and provision of resources. We empower shelters we support to end domestic violence through assisting shelters in achieving financial stability and accountability.

Our primary responsibilities to the organizations we support include:

  • Verifying the legitimacy of the organizations we support to ensure that they are
    consistent with their mission and accountable in their use of funds.
  • Raising funds for shelters we support through fundraisers, grant applications,
    website donations, and other opportunities as appropriate.
  • Offering donors tax exempt status for their charitable donations to the organizations we support.
