National Safe Place Network announces March 20-26, 2016 as National Safe Place Week (#NSPWeek2016)! This nationally-recognized week highlights the Safe Place program, which brings together businesses and volunteers to provide immediate help and safety to teens facing abuse, neglect, bullying or other crisis situations. It is a time to raise awareness of Safe Place as an immediate option for youth in crisis and to recognize many valued Safe Place partners that strengthen the national safety net for youth.
Licensed Safe Place agencies are encouraged to host events and activities during National Safe Place Week. Please contact your local Safe Place agency to learn about volunteer opportunities and other ways to get involved. Don’t have Safe Place in your community? No worries. Learn how to start a Safe Place program.
National Safe Place Week is a great time to share information on social media channels about Safe Place and other youth service organizations. Educate friends and family members about the issues youth face and share information about helpful resources.
