Our Services

Youth Advocacy Program

SafeHouse Denver’s Youth Advocacy Program (YAP) provides non-residential services to people under 24 years old and the professionals who serve them.

The YAP provides both responsive and preventative services.

For youth who have experienced or witnessed domestic violence (DV), one-on-one counseling and group support are available. For at-risk youth, YAP provides skill-building and educational workshops to youth in their communities.

YAP provides professional development to service providers who work with youth.

YAP also serves Denver’s youth by hosting fun and educational community engagement opportunities. Please email us for more information!
