Project Safe Place is a national program that provides youth with safe places to seek help 24-hours per day. Youth ages 11-17 can access any of the 68 Safe Place sites across Lane County identified by the yellow and black diamond-shaped signs.
Staff at each site are trained to assist the youth in contacting Station 7. Depending on the situation youth can get on any LTD bus and be transported to Station 7 free of charge by requesting a “Safe Place Ride,” or volunteer drivers can be dispatched to transport the youth.
Station 7 is the Safe Place Coordinator for Lane County. We connect local business and volunteers with our program to best serve the youth. We also offer presentations to middle and high school students to expand youth awareness of the program.
As a national program, there are 139 Safe Place programs spread across 37 States. Our program is available for all of Lane County and is the only Safe Place program in Oregon. No matter where a youth is they can text “SAFE” and their current location (Address- City –State) to 69866 and within seconds they will receive a text with the closest Safe Place location. They then can response with “2chat” for a one-on-one support worker.
