The Underground is a 24/7 drop-in center for youth in Fort Worth, TX

1100 Hemphill Street Fort Worth, TX 76104

I didn’t feel I had any worth until I came to this place. Your staff make me feel like I matter. I have never felt that before… But here… it’s life changing!

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.

Do you need a safe place?
You matter here.

If we wait for these youth to ask for help, they may never receive the services they deserve.

We must take action now to intervene earlier in the process, and to prevent this from happening in the first place.

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.

Give to the crucial work of intervention happening at The Underground
