National Safe Place (NSP) Week takes place March 19-25, 2017. This nationally recognized week highlights Safe Place, an outreach and prevention program which brings together businesses, organizations and volunteers to provide immediate help and safety for all young people. Unfortunately, youth may face a variety of dangers in their young lives, including abuse, neglect, bullying, family struggles, homelessness, and more. NSP Week is a time to raise awareness about Safe Place as a critical connection to supportive resources for young people. It's also an opportunity to recognize the many valued Safe Place partners that are committed to serving youth in crisis and ultimately strengthening the national safety net for youth.

National Safe Place Network
Safe Place is a nationally recognized outreach and prevention program for youth in crisis. As the only nationwide safety net initiative implemented on a local level, Safe Place brings together community organizations and businesses in the public and private sectors who seek to provide immediate help and supportive services for all youth. The Safe Place program is a unique, prevention-based outreach model which unites social service agencies, corporations, civic organizations, government entities, volunteers, educators, and law enforcement in an effort to increase the number of access points through which young people can connect for assistance. More than 20,000 locations across the country display the yellow-and-black diamond-shaped Safe Place sign, the universal symbol for youth safety. Safe Place locations include: libraries, fire stations, YMCAs, grocery and convenience stores, public transportation vehicles, social service facilities, and more.
