Need Help?








National Safe Place (NSP) Week will take place on March 19-25, 2017. This nationally recognized week highlights the Safe Place® program, a national outreach and prevention program which brings together businesses 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 of Safe Place as a critical connection to supportive resources for young people. It is 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

NSP Week garners support for Safe Place and calls attention to local and national issues affecting youth. Well-planned awareness activities provide opportunities for individuals and organizations to share information about Safe Place and youth in crisis as well as opportunities to get involved in local Safe Place program efforts. Effective NSP Week activities:

  • Increase awareness about Safe Place;
  • Provide opportunities for advocacy;
  • Build community support for Safe Place and licensed Safe Place agencies; and,
  • Recognize individuals, organizations, and businesses involved in Safe Place.

NSP Week 2017 will be celebrated nationally using the following themed days:

  • Safe Place Sunday – March 19
