Our Mission: To lead in providing quality, comprehensive healthcare that is affordable and accessible, and to support the dedicated professionals who make caring for the individuals we serve their number one priority


Sue Curfman, President and CEO





I work with victims of domestic assault that occurred in Jefferson County. I am a representative stationed at the Jefferson County Sherriff’s Office (JCSO), and review all the intimate partner domestic assault reports. After reviewing report, I select cases to take on as a Domestic Violence Enhanced Response Team (DVERT). I reach out to victims and share resources, support, intervention, and advocacy. Sometimes, victims just need to be heard, but I support them with safety planning, emergency shelters, referrals to other community services, assistance with filling out legal documents, and attending court hearings. Cases are reviewed in a monthly meeting which includes the Prosecuting Attorney, Prosecuting Attorney Victim’s Advocate, Probation & Parole, Private Probation, JCSO Victim Services, JCSO Detective/Lieutenant, Family & Drug Court Coordinator, ASP Manager, & myself.


I think it is important for victims to know they are not alone and that there is help out there. There are so many victims that “fall through the cracks” because the process can be so overwhelming and they may not know what to do or how to get help. So many will give up if they don’t have someone that believes in them, encourages them to believe in themselves, and helps them through a daunting and sometimes scary system. If I can help improve the lives of victims in our community by providing resources, support, intervention, and advocacy, then that will spread to others creating a positive chain effect! It is my hope that no victim feels unseen –that there are always options to any situation.


I am a survivor of domestic violence and would not be where I am today if it wasn’t for the services I received from COMTREA and ASP. In 2004, I sought shelter at ASP to flee a domestic violence situation and my life was forever changed! That experience fueled my heart and passion to help other victims. I have been volunteering with ASP since 2006 by speaking out at various engagements and fundraisers, modeling in the former ASP fashion shows (fun, fun!), becoming an ASP Ambassador, and participating in different committees. I am currently the chair on the Friends of A Safe Place Advisory Committee and love every minute of it; all community members are welcome so contact me if interested.
