Here is a terrific resource to have or share. Familylinks in Pittsburgh is part of the National Safe Space program. Youth in need of a safe place for shelter or other resources can text "Safe" and their current location to 69866 and a Familylinks street outreach worker will respond and direct you to help. You can also locate businesses or public place in the city with a "Safe Place" sticker and folks there are trained to get you in touch with a FamilyLinks outreach worker. You can visit www.nationalsafespace.org to find the location nearest you.
