A Safe space Facility:

A warm and inviting physical location, according to CCTC, is critical to establishing a safe emotional place for the children and families we serve. This has been factored into our interior design strategy. Our facilities, which are decorated with bright colours, optimistic slogans, and interpretative artwork, are designed to reflect the sense of optimism and healing that we strive to in still in the children we work with. We want to employ the same strategy to guarantee that the locations we occupy match our identity as an organization as we expand into Montgomery County and continue to offer activities at additional places across the city.
