Teen in Crisis

teen in crisis

Are you a youth, ages 12 – 18, with nowhere to sleep tonight? Are you running away or afraid you’re going to get kicked out? Are you in an unstable housing situation, couchsurfing with friends, sleeping outside, or temporarily staying in a daily or weekly motel?  Are you in need of a place to stay, food, clothing, hygiene supplies, or someone to talk to? Do you feel you’re in danger?

If you said yes to any of these questions, call our crisis hotline 24-hours-a-day at 1-866-U-ARE-SAFE (1-866-827-3723) to talk to someone and get connected to immediate help.

If it’s between 8 a.m. and 7 p.m. Monday – Saturday, you can also come directly to our Drop-In Center, located at 4981 Shirley Street, Las Vegas, NV 89119 (near the intersection of Tropicana Ave. and Maryland Parkway, across Tropicana from the Thomas & Mack Center). Walk-in’s are welcome.

At any time of day, if you find yourself in need of immediate help and safety and/or shelter, you can find a Safe Place by going to any Terrible Herbst convenience store, City of Las Vegas Fire Station, or getting onto any Regional Transportation Commission bus and asking for help. If you need help finding the closest Safe Place, call 1-866-U-ARE-SAFE and we’ll help you find your way. One of our trained Crisis Responders will meet you within 30 minutes of your arrival at a Safe Place site and get you the help you need.
