About Safe Place for Youth
2469 Lincoln Blvd., VENICE, CA 90291, US
Safe Place for Youth’s mission is to inspire, nurture, and empower the resilient human spirit of homeless youth by providing immediate and lasting solutions, one young person at a time.
It is estimated there are approximately 9.000 homeless youth living in the Los Angeles area, with 100% of them without shelter each night on the Westside of Los Angeles.... Safe Place for Youth believes these harsh realities are unacceptable and we are committed to advocating for these youth and helping them in any way possible. We provide services and support for homeless youth and those who are at risk of becoming homeless by addressing basic human needs through a "safe haven" atmosphere of hope and concern. SPY provides three core areas of service provision; Drop-in Center, Case Management and Street Outreach. The majority of our organization is on a volunteer basis; operating on donations of time, funds and goods.SPY is dedicated to providing a safe and pleasant environment that will allow youth to relax, escape the dangers of the streets, and just spend some time being themselves. We offer Drop-In hours Tuesday and Thursday 1-6pm where youth can access case management, pregnancy & parenting, educational & employment and health & dental services, a hot meal, the internet and a variety of art classes. We also have street outreach where we engage in youth on the streets and introduce them to SPY.
We'll work with your schedule.
