National Safe Place Week Wrap Up

This week concludes National Safe Place Week, where we have celebrated with Safe Place Programs nationwide!

Safe Place creates a network of Safe Place locations — schools, fire stations, libraries, grocery and convenience stores, public transit, YMCAs and other appropriate public buildings – that display the yellow and black diamond-shaped Safe Place sign. These locations extend the doors of the youth service agency or emergency shelter throughout the community. Thanks to this easily-replicated initiative, the whole community to provide safe havens and resources for youth in crisis and youth can easily access immediate help wherever they are.

Today’s NSP Week theme is “Feel Good Friday.” You can join us today to take a walk with our Shelter House youth, staff, board members, volunteers, etc, in honor of this momentous week and cause. We will meet at our offices (2400 Crittenden Drive) at 4PM and walk to Dairy Castle. Come join us for this celebration!
