Project Safe Place

Arbor Youth Services is Central Kentucky’s ONLY Safe Place designated emergency shelter.  Our Safe Place services provide access to immediate help and supportive resources for all young people in crisis.  Youth can walk into any safe place site displaying the yellow sign and ask for help.  Safety is only a phone call away.

Youth in crisis can text the word SAFE and their current location to the number 69866 and they will receive an address of the nearest Safe Place site and contact number for the local youth shelter!
