Housing & Shelter

Safe Place

Provides access to immediate help and supportive resources for youth in crisis. Safe Place is a youth outreach program that connects businesses and volunteers to provide help and safety to youth facing abuse, neglect, bullying, serious family struggles, homelessness, and more. As youth enter a designated Safe Place location (sites displaying a yellow and black Safe Place sign) and ask for help, trained volunteers connect them to appropriate assistance.
