Safe Places

Looking for a safe haven in the Ferguson area that provide access to immediate help and supportive resources for young people in crisis.

Safe Place is a national youth outreach program that educates thousands of young people every year about the dangers of running away or trying to resolve difficult, threatening situations on their own. This easily replicated community initiative involves the whole community to provide safe havens and resources for youth in crisis.
Safe Place creates a network of “Safe Place locations” – youth friendly businesses, schools, fire stations, libraries, YMCAs and other appropriate public buildings that display the distinctive yellow and black Safe Place sign.

Below are the lists of these networks in the Ferguson community:

  • Emerson Family YMCA
    3390 Pershall Road
  • Walgreens
    190 N Florissant Rd.
  • Quick Trip
    9420 W Florissant Ave.
  • UMB Bank
    1 Church Street
