Helping Teens In Crisis In Riverside County

When families come to us, they’re usually at their wit’s end—parents are frustrated and children don’t know where to turn. Our 21-day Emergency Shelter provides a caring staff that is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week for youth and their families who need help negotiating the often challenging road from childhood to an independent adult life.

In business for 27 years and with shelters in Riverside and Thousand Palms, Operation SafeHouse is well equipped to handle runaway, homeless, and other youth in crisis. Teens who don’t know where else to go are always welcome at our shelters—all they have to do is show up.

For parents who are interested in early intervention we encourage you to call us to set up a screening for your child, before the situation escalates and they become runaways. A Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist will work with you and your child to create a  holistic plan of action to bring relief from the tension and stress at home.

Teens participate in a structured, 21-day program that provides the family unit hope that things CAN get better—trust CAN be rebuilt,  and the lines of communication CAN be reopened.

Parents are involved every step of the way. They attend weekly family counseling sessions and are encouraged to participate in parenting classes both while their child is in the program and after they graduate.

We’re here for youth and families in crisis each and every step of the way.
