Our Safe Place Goes Virtual April 7, 2020

Our Safe Place Goes Virtual

LGBTQ+ youth can now join Our Safe Place on Zoom to connect with staff and peers.

The Our Safe Place drop-in center at our Golden Hill Youth Center is also operating on a needs-only basis during the COVID-19 public health emergency. This means that at the physical drop-in location, we are providing showers, hygiene items and pick-up for your gender affirming items and/or if you want to grab a snack.

Our Safe Place provides mental health services and drop-in centers for LGBTQ+ youth up to age 21 and their families. It’s a collaborative program with South Bay Community Services and the YMCA of San Diego County.

Please contact Melanie Martellaro at (619) 871-8342, 12pm – 8pm, for more information and how to access the new activities or to get set up with staff for check-ins.
