  2. National Safe Place is a nationally known organization that provides access to immediate help and supportive resources for young people in crisis through a network of sites sustained by qualified agencies, trained volunteers and businesses.

    In 2005, Tumbleweed Center for Youth Development was awarded a contract to be the lead local agency in our area for National Safe Place.

    How SafePlace Works...

    1) A youth in crisis walks into a designated Safe Place location (ALL QuikTrip stores in our area and Arizona Federal Credit Unions are authorized SafePlaces and are identified by a Safe Place sign or decal at each location) and tells the first available employee that they need Safe Place help.
    2) The employee will find a quiet, comfortable place for the youth to wait while they call the local Safe Place contact.

    3) The Safe Place contact will call the location back to identify the volunteer or staff member who will come to meet the young person at the location.

    4) Ideally, within 20-30 minutes, the Safe Place volunteer or staff member will arrive to talk with the youth and transport him or her to the agency for counseling, support, a place to stay or other resources.
