New Someplace Safe Advocate Position to Focus on Services for Youth

New Someplace Safe Advocate Position to Focus on Services for Youth

Someplace Safe has secured funding for a new Youth Advocate position. This position will provide free and confidential services to children and youth, ages 12-18, who identify as victims and survivors of crimes throughout the agency’s 9-county service area. In this new position, the goal is to engage youth in actively healing from victimization through access to services. Someplace Safe looks forward to working with community and system partners to help ensure that youth have the tools and resources necessary to help them live safe, healthy, successful lives.

Latasha Scott, Crime Victim Advocate, expressed that she very excited to move into this new position which focuses on youth. “I recognize that many youth may not realize that they are victims of a crime, or that there are services specifically for them” stated Scott. “This position is about community outreach and raising awareness.”

If you are someone you know is a victim of a crime, please contact Someplace Safe at 1.800.974.3359. For questions or more information about the new Youth Advocate position, please contact 218-631-3311 or latasha.s@someplacesafe.info.
