THE MISSION

The mission of Secular Safe House is to 1) provide a safe refuge for those coming out of religion, cults or as LGBT (gay, lesbian, bisexual or transgender) from religious environments, 2) promote unity within the secular community, 3) and raise general awareness and educate the public regarding the history and real impact of religion in our world.

 

HOW WE ACHIEVE OUR MISSION

Secular Safe House will accomplish the above mission by

1)Providing a platform for those transitioning out of a religiously hostile environment and seeking temporary housing to locate volunteers opening their homes or providing access to housing;

2) Providing a platform for the secular community to open their home to secular travelers.

3) Providing info and access to online and local secular events, support resources and programs; and

4) Financing and producing PSAs,  documentaries, videos and podcasts designed to raise awareness and educate the general public about the impact of religion and the existence of SSH.

 

WHY THE NEED

When someone determines they no longer believe in religion, decides to leave a cult or come out as LGBT from a religious environment, often they have no friends or family to support them. In some religions/cults those who leave or come out are shunned or at least socially ostracized by the only support system they know. Sometimes a spouse or parent will even kick them out of the home and leave them with no way to support themselves.  SSH exists to provide the support one coming out needs when their own family and friends turn their backs.

Escaping the bonds of religion can be daunting, exhausting, and even dangerous proposition. Secular Safe House seeks to offer a safe place to land, not only physically, but emotionally and intellectually.  We are a community of the formerly religious as well as lifelong secularists and humanists.

 

COMING OUT CONVERSATIONS

Coming Out Conversations” are podcasts featuring interviews with those who have come out of religion, cults, or as lesbian, gay, bisexual, or transgendered (LGBT) from religious environments and their advice for others having doubts or contemplating coming out, as well as interviews with those who have come out as secular activists and leaders. If you have a coming out story you would like to share, please contact us. To receive email notifications when new podcasts are posted or other SSH news, subscribe to our mailing list (top left).
