At Safe Places, it’s all about the young people.


We exist to guide young people along a personal growth journey using our Integrative Practice Framework; this is our mission. It draws from internationally-regarded and contemporary therapeutic models of care.

Through our therapeutic residential care service, we have positively impacted nearly 1,700 young people’s lives, ranging in age from young children to 18 years.
