At the SAFE Program, we are dedicated to the health and safety of our clients and clinicians. As a result of the Governor of the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania Emergency Declaration, the staff of the SAFE Program is working remotely providing telehealth services. This interactive telecommunication technology includes audio and video.

If you need to reach someone at the SAFE program, you can still leave a voice message on their office phone; a clinician will return your call as soon as possible.

If you are experiencing a clinical emergency, please contact Re:Solve Crisis Services at 1-888-796-8226.

A Child's Place Child Advocacy Center (CAC)

A Child’s Place serves as a contact point for child abuse assessments. Their primary goal is for child victims to avoid multiple interviews at multiple locations, by bringing a team of professionals to the child. They use a coordinated MDT (Multi-Disciplinary Team) approach that brings together representatives from law enforcement, child protective services, victim advocacy, as well as our forensic interviewers, medical professionals, and family advocates, who collaborate on cases at their center.
