SafeFutures Youth Center
The mission of SafeFutures Youth Center is to create a caring extended family atmosphere at a center that provides the highest quality services, in order to fully develop the potential of everyone who enters through our doors. We coordinate daily services and activities so that young people may build: positive self-identity and self-awareness; positive relationships and values to the community; positive individual and peer relationships, behaviors, and values; positive family interaction and communication skills; pro-social, academic and employable skills; and youth leadership and community service.
These objectives are accomplished by offering the following services: 1) individual, family and peer counseling, 2) crisis intervention, 3) home visits and parent workshops, 4) school, juvenile justice, and other advocacy services, 5) referral to other services (including health, mental health, alcohol and drug services, 7) culture and gender specific projects, field trips, recreation, community service and leadership development projects, and 8) community organizing and technical support to emerging communities. We provide these services to primarily low income refugee and immigrant Southeast Asian, East African and Multi-ethnic youth and their families.
