Mental health includes our emotional, psychological, and social well-being. It affects how we think, feel, behave, and act. It also helps determine how we handle stress, relate to others, and make choices. Mental health is important at every stage of life, from childhood and adolescence through adulthood. We provide many different interventions to help increase positive mental health to our clients and community members. We work in partnership and collaborate with our clients to identify their positive mental health goals and develop a plan of treatment.
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.
Through our Villa Paloma Transitional Shelter, Rainbow Services provides transitional housing for longer-term safety and assistance for women and children after they exit a domestic violence emergency shelter. As women work to secure economic resources and permanent housing, Rainbow offers up to 12 months of supportive housing, counseling, case management, health and wellness services, and children’s enrichment.
