Get Involved

You don’t have to be a parent, business professional, or organization to get involved with Safe Place. There are lots of ways you can promote safety within your community.

Tell your friends and family

Tell your friends and family about Safe Place. It’s important to be prepared by knowing what Safe Place is and how to access help.

Safe Place can:

  • Help keep your sister safe from being followed home from school 

  • Provide shelter to your friend who was kicked out of his home

  • Offer counseling or other community resources to your family who’s struggling to communicate or get along 

  • Help your younger brother who is experiencing bullying at school

There is no problem too small or large where Safe Place cannot make a difference in a young person’s life.
