To inspire change in a young person’s life, we at Safe Place for Youth engage, build trust, and provide care and support to youth experiencing homelessness, so that the youth, not their situations, define their lives. Our robust continuum of care addresses the unique needs of this population through assertive street outreach, low barrier drop-in services, health and wellness programming, case management, and education and employment services.
We have two shelters, a 30-day emergency shelter called Rainbow House and a transitional shelter where you and your children may remain for up to one year called Villa Paloma. We also have counseling, case management, parenting classes, life-skills classes, and several Children's Programs.
We provide therapeutic residential services, foster family home placements, adoption services, transitional and affordable housing, family preservation, wraparound and mental health services for children youth and families throughout Los Angeles County. Specific services offered at this location include: Family Preservation; Foster Care/Adoption; Mental Health Services; TAY Drop-in Center; and Wraparound.
