Project Safe Place
The goal of the Safe Place Program is to have the Safe Place sign recognized nationally as a symbol of help and safety for any young person who is lost or scared, abused, threatened or in any unsafe situation.
In 2001, the City of Euless joined the Project Safe Place program by designating all three fire stations as safe locations for youth to go in a time of crisis.
Safe places provide temporary where any young person in need can walk in and ask for help. The Bridge Emergency Youth Services is contacted and within minutes a volunteer or staff counselor arrives to offer assistance. Safe Place puts distressed children and their families in touch with resources to provide support and guidance to the family.
Euless' three fire stations are located at:
- 201 E. Ash Lane
- 1515 Westpark Way
- 202 S. Main Street
In Tarrant County, Safe Place is operated by The Bridge Emergency Youth Services. The Bridge is a non-profit agency providing licensed emergency youth shelter and counseling and is funded by the Texas Department of Protective and Regulatory Services.
