What is the Safe House?
The Safe House is a non-profit group home for children between the ages of 5-17. We have 8 long term beds and 2 shelter beds. The long term beds are for child protection cases and shelter beds are used for crisis situations and Project Safe Place referrals.

Safe House Mission
At the Safe House, our mission is to incorporate both behavioral and cognitive changes to youth who have been neglected and/or abused. We strive to alter thinking errors by focusing on both actions and cognitive processes. In our attempt to prevent kids from continuing the cycle of abuse, we emphasize the importance of positive thinking and education while providing independent living skills, counseling, anger management, social skills groups, recreation activities, and alternatives to chaotic living. Safe House provides the structure, stability, and encouraging environment that children need to thrive. Our goal is to reunite children with their families, place them in foster care or find them adoptive homes.
