BRIGHT FUTURES FOR YOUTH #70210129


location_on G
  • 200 Litton Drive, Ste. 308
    Grass Valley, Nevada

The SAFE (Stability, Access, Foundation, Empowerment) program is committed to finding and helping youth ages 12 -26 who are experiencing homelessness.

Many youth experiencing homelessness do not have access to local or state funding or simply don’t know what services are available. And few nonprofit organizations in the region can help. SAFE fills the gap by connecting youth who have alternative, unpredictable, or inconsistent housing access with community resources and well-trained professionals.

SAFE helps mitigate homelessness in Nevada County by providing:
  • Basic needs, such as food, clothing, housing, hygiene supplies, showers
  • Education and training, including transitioning to college and/or trade school
  • Physical health and mental wellness counseling
  • Training to develop the necessary skills to live independently
