About Safe Station:
  • Safe Station is the only temporary emergency shelter serving teens ages 12 – 18 specifically of St. Joseph County.

  • Some teens needing services are runaways, homeless, or victims of abuse or neglect. Some teens and their families need a "time out" from family tensions.

  • Our program goals are to provide safe, temporary housing for teens (most stay 21 days or less) and to work with teens and families for reunification. Teens at Safe Station participate in individual and family counseling and work with a service coordinator for problem-solving and skill building. Teens continue their education while staying at Safe Station.
