According to National Safe Place, a youth outreach organization, up to 2.8 million teenagers run away from home each year. The YMCA of Greater Charlotte partners with National Safe Place (NSP) and The Relatives, a Mecklenburg County youth shelter, in providing support to local teens who find themselves in crisis.

When a teen needs immediate assistance, they can enter any of our 19 Y membership locations identified with a bright yellow and black diamond-shaped “Safe Place” sign and ask for help.
