Get Involved to Keep Youth Safe

Many youth that seek Safe Place help have experienced abuse or neglect, family problems, emotional or mental health struggles, dating violence, unsafe drivers, or bullying from peers. Safe Place connects these youth to the help and support needed. Get involved to help secure ongoing safety for all youth in crisis in your community and throughout the country.
