The Safety Village is a not-for-profit community organization that is the recognized leader in providing safety and injury-prevention education programs to residents of Windsor-Essex. Annually, The Safety Village provides onsite safety education programs to as many as 10,000 elementary school children, and our numbers are growing. Since opening our doors, we have provided safety programs to more than 87,000 local school children, a figure that does not include the thousands of children and families who attend the numerous programs and events we offer both on and off site. Incorporated in 2000 through the efforts of the Rotary Club of Windsor 1918, we now partner with numerous community groups to raise awareness of safety, injury and crime prevention issues. Today, onsite offices include Windsor Police Services – Community Services Branch, Windsor Fire and Rescue Services, New Beginnings Child and Youth Services and Neighbourhood Watch Windsor. We are continually expanding our highly successful education centre through new safety and crime prevention programming including Neighbourhood Watch and via new community partnerships.
Our mission is to deliver compelling hands-on educational opportunities to help our community – children, youth, adults and seniors – stay safe. Wherever they are and whatever they are doing.
Our vision is to create a community where every person knows how to stay safe and make smart choices.
