SAFE utilizes the Austin Children’s Shelter Campus to provide services for children, young adults and families affected by abuse, exploitation and neglect. We believe that every child, youth and young adult deserves to feel safe; to receive nurturing care; and the opportunity to grow into happy, responsible and fulfilled adults. ACS is a safe space to begin to heal and learn to thrive.
ACS and SafePlace recently merged into The SAFE Alliance, and you can read more about the merger here.
For more than 30 years we have striven to serve the most vulnerable members of our community – which has often meant adapting. As part of The SAFE Alliance, our commitment to meeting our community’s emergency shelter needs will be bolstered. Together, we will achieve our vision of a just and safe community free from violence and abuse.
