Safe Place is a national organization that partners with local agencies to provide youth with a safe place to go in time of need. CDS is proud to be National Safe Place's local agency in Alachua and Putnam counties. Between the two counties, we have hundreds of Safe Place sites that include schools, libraries, businesses, and buses.
