How you help Safe Place for Youth's incredible volunteers are vital partners of our mission to end youth homelessness. Their dedication and commitment to upholding our therapeutic approach in serving youth are woven into every aspect of our programs.
About us To inspire change in a young person’s life, we at Safe Place for Youth engage, build trust, and provide care and support to youth experiencing homelessness, so that the youth, not their situations, define their lives. Our program prioritizes low barriers for entry, harm-reduction, a trauma-informed approach, and the provision of a safe, supportive environment. Basic human needs are addressed through a “safe haven” atmosphere of hope and concern. SPY provides three core areas of service provision: Street Outreach, Drop-in Center, and Case Management.
