If you’re in trouble or need help, text SAFE and your current location (address/city/state) to 69866
TXT 4 HELP is a nationwide service offered by National Safe Place to help teens connect to the closest location where they can get immediate help and safety.
Here is how it works:
If you’re in a crisis, text the word SAFE and your current location (address/city/state) to 69866.
We’ll text you back the address of the nearest Safe Place site and contact number for the local youth shelter. Within that same message you’ll receive a prompt that says, “reply with 2CHAT for more help.” Once you reply, you’ll be connected with a professional for more help.
