Empowering Youth: The Importance of National Safe Place Week

National Safe Place Week is upon us, a time to highlight the essential role of Safe Place

programs in communities nationwide. At Compass House, we're proud to be part of this vital network of support for youth in crisis. Join us as we celebrate the impact of Safe Place and reaffirm our commitment to providing safety and support to those who need it most.

Safe Place: A Sanctuary for Youth in Crisis

Safe Place serves as a lifeline for youth facing adversity. Whether experiencing homelessness, abuse, or other crises, Safe Place offers immediate access to help and resources. Youth can visit designated Safe Place sites, including Tops Markets, YMCA locations, Boys and Girls Clubs, GLYS, NFTA locations or firehalls, and request assistance. From there, they are connected with organizations like Compass House, where they receive the support and guidance needed to navigate their challenges.

Compass House: An Oasis of Assistance

At Compass House, we are proud to be a designated Safe Place site and a trusted resource for youth in crisis. Our doors are always open, providing a sanctuary for those with nowhere else to turn. From emergency shelter and counseling services to access to basic necessities, we strive to meet the immediate needs of every youth who seeks our help.

A Thank you to our Partners

During National Safe Place Week, we extend our gratitude to all Safe Place sites and partners who make this critical program possible. Together, we form a safety net for youth in our community, ensuring they have access to the support and resources needed to thrive.

TXT4HELP: Assistance at Your Fingertips

In addition to physical Safe Place locations, we also offer TXT4HELP, a convenient way for youth to access assistance wherever they are. By texting "safe" and their location to 69866, youth can quickly connect with trained professionals who can provide support and guidance in real-time. This innovative service ensures help is readily available, offering an additional layer of support for youth in crisis.

Join Us in Celebrating Safety and Support

As we celebrate National Safe Place Week, we invite you to recognize the importance of Safe Place programs in our community. Whether spreading awareness, volunteering time, or supporting organizations like Compass House, every action makes a difference. Together, we can continue to provide a sanctuary of support for youth in crisis and create a brighter, safer future for all.

National Safe Place Week underscores the crucial role Safe Place programs play in supporting youth in crisis. At Compass House, we are proud to be part of this important initiative, offering safety, support, and hope to those who need it most. As we celebrate this week, let's reaffirm our commitment to ensuring every young person has access to the help and resources needed to thrive. Together, we can make a difference and create a safer, more supportive community for all.
