Mission Statement

Safe Places works in the community to help children and families break the cycle of violence and abuse, through counseling, advocacy, support, and education. In so doing, we affirm the right of every child to safety, protection, and well-being, at home, at school, and in our neighborhoods.

Description

Our mission focuses on creating safe homes, safe schools and safe communies in which children and youth can grow and thrive.

In order to accomplish safety, protection and well-being for our community's children, we know that we must also work with a child's "influencers." With this goal in mind, we also work with the families and/or caregivers of the children in our programs, as well as other adults who are a part of the child's circle of influence. those individuals may be teachers, counselors, clergy, neighbors, extended family members, case workers, probation officers, school counselors, youth leaders, mentors . . .any person who has a place in the child's world.

We provide assistance to any person that is concerned with the best interest of the children and young people who are our clients. Services we provide include counseling, violence prevention education, advocacy, information and referral, training and technical assistance to professionals, and support for children and families harmed by violence.
