Safe Place

Gibson Library, Green Valley Library and Paseo Verde Library are designated Safe Place locations. Henderson Libraries along with the Las Vegas-Clark County Library District, over 100 Terrible Herbst convenience stores and 20 City of Las Vegas Fire Stations serve as Safe Place sites, in addition to NPHY’s own Drop-In Center. The Regional Transportation Commission of Southern Nevada also provides youth in crisis with free bus transportation to the nearest Safe Place location, offering mobile Safe Place access on 325 buses operating on over 30 routes throughout the region.

Youth can access the Safe Place program 24/7/365 by walking in to any Safe Place site, getting on any RTC bus and asking for help, or calling our crisis hotline at 1-866-U-ARE-SAFE (1-866-827-3723).
