What We Do

Since 1985, we have led the effort to get youth out of the “street life” and into a safe environment where staff work with youth to empower them and change their future story.  We have worked tirelessly to address the social issue of human trafficking and child exploitation for over 30 years.

Our Mission

Safe Inc. of Schenectady exists to provide outreach, shelter, counseling, and supportive services to runaway homeless youth who are sexually exploited or trafficked.

Justice will not be served until those who are unaffected are as outraged as those who are.
