Safe Place Program

  /  Safe Place Program

Providing education, programming and support with one common goal: to keep your children safe.

CASY’s Safe Place is a prevention program for youth in need of immediate help and safety. A child or teen can go to one of the Safe Place locations to ask for assistance, and the Safe Place coordinator will be contacted to assess the situation. The program provides youth and families with support and resources and with emergency shelter when necessary. The Safe Place program is a national youth outreach and prevention program for young people in need of immediate help and safety. Vigo County launched this program July 1, 2017, and will continue to expand its Safe Place locations.

How Safe Place Works

A young person enters a designated Safe Place location and asks for help. The Safe Place program-trained site employee finds a comfortable place for the youth to wait while the local Safe Place agency is called. A Safe Place representative arrives to talk with the youth and provide the necessary wraparound services. Currently, eight fire stations in Vigo County are participating in the Safe Place outreach, along with the Booker T. Washington Community Center. All locations are designated by the yellow Safe Place sign.
