National Safe Place Week: March 15-21

Jonathan’s Place, Dallas County’s only emergency shelter for children aged newborn to 17, announces March 15-21, 2015 as Safe Place Week. The week serves to increase awareness about the importance of youth safety and the dangers North Texas teens face when they feel they have nowhere to go or are in crisis situations. The week will also highlight the Dallas County Safe Place program, which brings together businesses and volunteers to provide help and safety for youth facing abuse, neglect, bullying or serious family problems.
