National Safe Place announces March 16-22, 2014 as National Safe Place Week (#SafePlaceWeek)! This annual week highlights the Safe Place program, which brings together businesses and volunteers to provide immediate help and safety to young people 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. 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-serving organizations. Educate friends and family members about the issues youth face and share information about helpful resources. Feel free to use the following Twitter hastags during National Safe Place Week: #SafePlaceWeek, #TXT4HELP #WhereisyourSafePlace
