Newberg-Dundee Youth Outreach

SafeShelter

“SafeShelter” uses the licensed, therapeutic host home model to provide local shelter services that is coupled with comprehensive services and healthy activities for runaway and homeless youth ages 11-17.  This essential service provides the assistance necessary to help affected youth move safely, with a Safe Exit, to a safe, stable, and appropriate living arrangement, developing a healthy, successful life.

We also believe SafeShelter provides a positive, creative, and cost effective alternative to involving runaway and homeless youth in law enforcement, child welfare, mental health, and juvenile justice systems.
