The Joe Torre Safe At Home Foundation’s mission is to develop educational programs that will end the cycle of domestic violence and save lives. Since its inception, the Foundation has educated thousands of students, parents, teachers and school faculty about the devastating effects of domestic violence.
Currently reaching children in schools and community centers in metropolitan New York City and schools in Los Angeles and Cincinnati, Margaret’s Place, a tribute to Joe’s mother, provides middle and high school students with a “safe room,” in which to talk about violence-related issues to each other and to a professional counselor trained in domestic violence intervention and prevention
Torre is the co-author of three books: The Yankee Years, Chasing the Dream: My Lifelong Journey to the World Series, and Joe Torre’s Ground Rules for Winners: 12 Keys to Managing Team Players, Tough Bosses, Setbacks and Success.
