TXT 4 HELP
XT 4 HELP is a service to help young people connect to the closest Safe Place site. A teen in crisis can text the word SAFE and their current address to 69866 and they will receive a text back with the address of the nearest Safe Place site. In that same message, there is a prompt to reply with “2CHAT” to connect with a professional for more help.
