We are National Safe Place. And we’re here to help.
When teens find themselves in crisis or need a place to stay, they should know how and where to get help. Our nation’s young people deserve safety and shelter and many youth feel they don’t have either. Thanks to Safe Place, help for teens is never too far away.
Safe Place is an outreach and prevention program for young people in need of immediate help and safety. As a community initiative,the program designates schools, fire stations, libraries and youth-friendly businesses as Safe Place sites where youth can access help and supportive resources.
Safe Place locations extend the doors of the local youth service agency or shelter to support teens in crisis situations, creating a safety net for youth.
Are you interested in starting the Safe Place program? Are you an existing licensed Safe Place agency with new staff who need to be trained on Safe Place operating procedures? Join us for our upcoming Safe Place Implementation Training on April 7-8 in Louisville, Kentucky!
