Operation SafeHouse has been providing the Street Outreach program to entrenched street youth since 1997. Our team is in the community seven days a week at locations where runaway and homeless youth are known to congregate. They are given referrals, hygiene products, gift cards, and transportation to our shelters or transitional living programs if they would like to move from the streets into a safe and stable environment. Youth can also access our program through our 30 Safe Place partner sites, including the RTA and the SunLine bus systems who provide “mobile” Safe Places throughout the county.
