Our History and Mission

At My Friends’ Place we provide 13-17-year-old homeless teenagers with a bed, meals, clothing, showers, laundry facilities, hygiene products, support services and individualized case management services. We also offer drop-in services to all youth in need in our community.



Homelessness in the Tri-Cities

Homelessness does exist in our community and knows no boundaries. Our homeless youth come from all socioeconomic classes, all religions, all races, all genders, and all cultures. The one thing these kids have in common is…FEAR.

Homeless teens come from broken homes; homes filled with abuse, neglect, and pain. There’s a huge gap in services for our population of 13-17 year-old homeless teens and we are currently their only resource and their only hope for a brighter future.


What can YOU do?

My Friends’ place is a program of Safe Harbor Support Center that relies on the generosity of our community and donors to continue our daily operations. Monetary donations can be made at the shelter or via our website at any time. My Friends’ Place is always in need of donations. Our kids depend on you for clothing, bedding, food and entertainment. Donations can be brought to the shelter at any time.

Volunteers are always welcome! Stop in today!
