Safe Place in King County: A review of a collaboration supporting runaway and homeless youth in King County

Economic Well-Being, Education, Youth, and Families

With support from the Medina and Giddens Foundations, Cardea was engaged to conduct an independent evaluation of the first two years of Safe Place implementation in King County, using existing data collected by Safe Place program staff. Safe Place has established several primary program goals and benchmarks to evaluate the quality of services and success of the program. In this report, we evaluate whether these benchmarks have been met and describe client demographic, service, and outcome measures.
