Housed in One Safe Place, the drop-in center provides a place for rest, meals, shower facilities, safety, counseling resources, and referral for services for youth through age 22.
Open 24/7 and with a street reputation such that youth on the street take a chance on visiting, the drop-in center provides an open door for a population that has historically been difficult to reach.
The Underground is available as a needed short-term resting place for survivors recovered from trafficking. Assured of their safety, youth are able to sleep, eat, and unwind as our staff help facilitate next steps, whether that is returning home, rehab, shelter, or other long-term residential option.
The Underground provides this new entry point for services, allowing us to identify survivors and intervene earlier, sparing these youth years of pain and trauma.
