How the Safe Place Program Works

Any young person under 17 may go to any business, community center or TARC bus displaying the Safe Place sign, ask for help, and an employee at the site will contact a Safe Place Services team member. Youth and teens may also talk with a teacher or counselor at their school about YMCA Safe Place Services.

Once our staff is contacted, a trained volunteer will soon arrive and then transport the youth to our facility, where they will be welcomed, receive an immediate safety assessment and be provided with the help they need.
