Will you Support their Journey to Safety?

Right now, in your community, there are youth, like Amaya, who desperately need your help accessing safety. Prior to the Coronavirus Disease (COVID-19), Safe Place® provided a safety net for youth who were dealing with bullying, suicidal thoughts, homelessness, abuse, and neglect. Today, due to COVID-19, families are experiencing intensified containment measures and children are at a heightened risk of abuse, neglect, exploitation, and domestic violence. Situations like this can easily leave a young person needing someone to talk to – or a young person needing a safe place to go. There are many young people who have sought out safety from Safe Place. You can read about their “Journey to Safety” here. Your monetary contribution will help provide access to safety for youth in your community. Are you willing to help?
