What is Safe Place?
Safe Place is a national youth outreach and prevention program for young people under the age of 18 (up to 21 years of age in some communities) in need of immediate help and safety. As a collaborative community prevention initiative, Safe Place designates businesses and organizations as Safe Place locations, making help readily available to youth in communities across the country. Safe Place locations include: libraries, YMCAs, fire stations, public buses, various businesses, and social service facilities.
Designated Safe Place locations display the Safe Place sign, the universal symbol of youth safety. If a young person needs immediate help or safety, they can depend on any location with the Safe Place sign. For more info: www.nationalsafeplace.org
