Safe Landing provides emergency shelter for troubled young people 11 years of age and older.
The primary purpose of this program is to give immediate assistance to both the young person and the family in a time of crisis. The services include short-term residential care, drop-in counseling, a 24-hour telephone hotline, and assistance in finding alternative living situations when necessary.
Because of the great demand for helping our youth we have expanded our service to include a new program, The Street Outreach Services program.
Two Locations both located in the Akron area.
Youth Shelter for Boys
The original facility that opened in 1978.
The primary focus at that time was providing a short-term place for runaway youth to stay and receive counseling. Several years later, the program expanded to include young people experiencing a wide range of problems.
Youth Shelter for Girls
Built in 1987 as a project of the local Home Builders Association.
Amazingly, it was constructed in a 24-hour period with over 200 tradesmen participating!
