MOREHEAD, Ky. (AP) — Kentucky's newest Safe Place is offering services in Morehead.

The Daily Independent reported this week that the Mountain Haven Emergency Shelter became the fourth organization in Kentucky to offer the Safe Place program.

Program Manager Teresa Forman said the program focuses on helping youth and teens, typically ages 12-18. She said the organization offers a variety of aid including crisis care.

In order to get help, children can go to sites such as businesses, fire stations, police stations and community centers that have been approved as Safe Places. They can ask for help and workers will ask a few basic questions before contacting Mountain Haven.

Depending on what the teen needs, Mountain Haven can offer services including shelter, rides, mentoring and referrals to other agencies.
