About Safe Place
Youth can approach any established Safe Place site, which includes all of our 27 locations, recognizable by a yellow diamond logo, or call 1-800-422-TEEN to receive immediate help. A Safe Place coordinator will respond 24/7, providing resources, connecting the young person to shelter services, or reuniting them with family when safe and appropriate.
The Safe Place program in King County is operated through a collaboration of Auburn Youth Resources, Friends of Youth, and YouthCare, and is funded by the United Way of King County. We are part of a network of agencies and organizations providing over 1,900 Safe Place sites throughout the county, including Seattle Parks and Recreation's community centers, Metro Transit buses, King County libraries and YMCA facilities.
