Here’s how Safe Place works:
Step One – A young person enters a Safe Place and asks for help.
Step Two – The site employee finds a comfortable place for the youth to wait while they call the licensed Safe Place agency. For the greater San Antonio area that is Roy Maas Youth Alternatives (RMYA).
Step Three – Within 30 minutes, a RMYA staff member or qualified Safe Place volunteer will arrive to talk with the youth and, if necessary, provide transportation to RMYA's Centro Seguro Drop-In Center.
Step Four – Once at Centro Seguro, counselors meet with the youth and provide support. Agency staff makes sure the youth and their families receive the help and professional services they need.
This program is for youth under the age of 18 in need of immediate help and safety.
