National Safe Place Week

National Safe Place (NSP) Week is celebrated nationally during the third full week in March each year.  This recognized week honors Safe Place, an outreach and prevention program for youth in crisis. NSP Week serves to recognize the many valued partners who work together to provide immediate help and safety for all young people. It is a dedicated time to acknowledge licensed Safe Place agencies, Safe Place locations and community partners and volunteers. These individuals and groups are the pillars of strength that support the national safety net for youth.

Safe Place Sunday – March 18
Heart of the Matter Monday – March 19
