21 Mar National Safe Place Week

Safe Place Week

Councilman Greg Duckworth presents the National Safe Place Week proclamation to Sea Haven Executive Director Christina Jackson.

North Myrtle Beach City Councilman Greg Duckworth presents a proclamation from North Myrtle Beach Mayor Marilyn Hatley declaring March 18-24 as National Safe Place Week in North Myrtle Beach to Sea Haven.

Safe Place is based on a public/private collaboration between businesses, school, systems, fire and police departments and a network of volunteers. Safe Places for youth can be found at businesses such as restaurants, convenience stores, movie theaters, and community buildings such as fire and police stations, libraries and community centers.

Safe Place Week

Greg Duckworth poses with children and Sea Haven Staff including Wendy Gore, Outreach and Safe Place Coordinator, David Palinski, Street Outreach Program Director, and Christina Jackson, Executive Director, to commemorate National Safe Place Week.

Safe Place was initiated to provide youth with a safe haven from various negative influences, such as child abuse, substance abuse, depression and crime. When a young person makes contact with a Safe Place, they can receive information or immediate care.

More than 1,500 communities in 40 states administer the Safe Place program at over 19,000 locations. For more information, please contact Christina Jackson, the Sea Haven Executive Director.
