A welcoming community center for youth up to age 21 and their families.

One of San Diego’s most vulnerable populations, Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender and Questioning (LGBTQ) youth, often suffer because of non-supportive or even hostile environments in their homes, schools, and communities. Located at SBCS Trolley Trestle Youth Hub, Our Safe Place (OSP) provides a wide variety of services for youth and their families, including support for alcohol and drug abuse, coming out, depression, family relationships, gender identity, sexual health, safe dating and transitioning.

Our Safe Place is a collaborative program with San Diego Youth Services and the YMCA of San Diego County. Each partner provides a drop-in center and San Diego Youth Services also provides a mental health clinic. The program is funded by the County of San Diego Health and Human Services Agency.
