Fresno EOC Sanctuary and Youth Services program operates a network of more than 260 Safe Place sites throughout Fresno County including all Fresno Unified School District schools, Wal-Mart stores, Boys and Girls Clubs, Holy Cross Center for Women’s center, Neighborhood Resource centers, City of Fresno Parks and Recreation Centers, United Way and other youth-friendly sites.
Fresno Area Express (FAX), another partner, has designated every city bus as a mobile Safe Place. From any bus stop a FAX bus stop, a teen in crisis can board a FAX bus and inform the driver that s/he is in need of a “Safe Place”. Those two words activate a special FAX policy that allows the youth on-board until a route supervisor is dispatched to meet him/heart the next bus stop. From there, the adolescent is safely transported to the Sanctuary Youth Shelter in downtown Fresno.
