Safe Children Coalition’s Capital Campaign:
A Place of New Beginnings for Homeless and Troubled Youth

At Safe Children Coalition, we believe that even one child or youth living in fear and uncertainty is one too many. Our compassionate staff and strong community partners help youth and families in crisis to find a safe way forward.

A New Youth Shelter for
Our Community

Our Youth Shelter for community teens is the only shelter for Sarasota and DeSoto counties. We serve teens from Manatee County too. It will be centrally located on Sawyer Road in Sarasota and help us stabilize teens and prevent them from entering foster care.

Need & Impact

Our shelter has been in the community since 1991 and has provided safety for thousands of youths and over 60,000 safe shelter bed nights. We consistently rank as one of the highest performing youth shelters in the State of Florida keeping youth who have no place else to go in school and off the streets.

Ways to Invest

Every gift counts. Whether your investment is at the Leadership, Major Gift, or Benefactor Level, a gift to the youth shelter is a gift to change a life. Multi-Year pledges, One-Time, Monthly, Donor Advised Fund Grants, Family Foundation and other Grants can help provide safe shelter for youth in our community.
