Safe Place

Immediate Shelter for Youth Escaping Danger

Safe Place is a national program coordinated locally by Synergy Services. It is designed to help young people in dangerous situations access safe shelter or other assistance. Typical situations include youth facing problems at home, experiencing abuse or neglect, living on the street or in other dangerous circumstances such as with a drunk or unsafe driver.

Youth in crisis situations can go to any of the Kansas City area Safe Place sites including: QuikTrip stores, Kansas City Area Transit Authority busses, and all branches of Kansas City and Mid-Continent public libraries. Site staff are trained to call Synergy’s 24-hour hotline, and a trained volunteer or staff member is dispatched to the site to provide assistance.
