Here’s how Safe Place works:

Step One – A young person enters a Safe Place and asks for help.

Step Two – The site employee finds a comfortable place for the youth to wait while they call the licensed Safe Place agency. For the greater San Antonio area that is Roy Maas Youth Alternatives (RMYA).

Step Three – An RMYA staff member will talk with the youth to get more information and explain that an SAPD officer can escort them to the RMYA Bridge Emergency shelter.  If the child is agreeable, the RMYA staff will contact SAPD to transport the youth to the shelter. 

Step Four – Once at the Bridge, direct-care staff and counselors meet with the youth and provide support. Agency staff ensures the youth and their families receive the help and professional services they need.

This program is for youth under the age of 18 in need of immediate help and safety.

This provides a safe home for pregnant and parenting teen mothers between 12-17 years of age and their babies who have experienced neglect and abuse.

Updated within the last 1 month.

These two homes are the only emergency shelters licensed by the State of Texas and dedicated to the care of children with special needs.

While children may be privately placed to allow their family to attend to a crisis or enjoy a short respite from the demands of caring for their child, the majority of children placed within Respite Care’s residential service are those in state custody who have been removed from their home as a result of abuse and neglect.

Participating children are enrolled in local schools, participate in recreational and educational activities, and follow a routine identical to that of a child residing in a typical home. Field trips are planned so that participants may experience recreational activities comparable to those of their non-disabled peers.

Children with special needs, ages infant to 17 years.
