SafeFutures Youth Center

SafeFutures empowers and advocates for underserved young people from low-income communities and communities of color to maximize their potential.  The Youth Center’s prevention and intervention programs and services aim to reduce youths’ involvement in the juvenile justice system, gangs, and school truancy and drop out. We are here to ensure that our young people emerge confident, resourceful, engaged community members with the tools and support to navigate their futures.
