Family Resources offers safe and clean youth homeless shelters in Pinellas and Manatee County. We provide short-term residential care and counseling, offering a safe refuge for homeless and runaway youth as well as respite and intervention to families in crisis. Follow up counseling and stable living placement assistance is provided. Our SafePlace2B shelters serve youth ages 10 to 17.

We Support Homeless Youth From All Backgrounds. Our shelters and counseling services are available to all young people regardless of gender, orientation, and walk of life. Youth who have family conflict, who have run away from home or are homeless, are having school-related problems, or who are in crisis and need respite are welcome.

Police, fire departments, school counselors, our own counselors, and family members refer young people to our youth homeless shelters.

SafePlace2B is a Trusted Source for Care and Counseling. Services through Family Resources are provided on an individualized basis. While at SafePlace2B, youth are provided with individual and group counseling, life skills, education, and recreational activities.

Family counseling is available while a young person is at SafePlace2B and can be continued through the Family Counseling office after leaving the residence. Over the course of a few days to a few weeks, most families are reunited with a new outlook on conflict and a new plan to avoid problems that lead to runaway or acting-out behaviors.

SafePlace2B services are available 24 hours a day, seven days a week in three locations: Clearwater, St. Petersburg, and Bradenton.
