Safer Foundation began serving the Quad Cities area in 1976 when it opened an employment services office in Rock Island. Two years later, Safer expanded into Iowa at the personal request of then-Gov. Robert Ray, who had discovered that many of the state’s parolees and probationers were seeking Safer’s services across the border in Illinois.

In 1996, Safer began serving court-involved youth and opened a second office in Davenport, Iowa. A similar program serving Rock Island youth opened in 2000.

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