Immediate Access to Help
The Center for Youth has partnered with community businesses and municipalities in the Greater Rochester region to provide approximately 300 designated sites for Safe Place, a national youth outreach program that launched in Rochester in 2006. Safe Place has educated thousands of young people locally about the dangers of running away or trying to resolve difficult, threatening situations on their own. In a crisis, a youth can go to a Safe Place site in the Rochester area to access immediate help and services from trained professionals at The Center for Youth.
If you are a young person in crisis, just look for the yellow and black Safe Place sign posted outside businesses, grocery stores, fires stations or offices and walk in to let someone know you need help.
