National Safe Place Week
Every year The Relatives hosts an event called Robert’s Walk, where participants walk from Freedom Park to our East Boulevard Crisis Center in honor of those who have taken the journey from crisis to safety and stability. The walk follows the path of Robert, a teenager, who was homeless and sleeping on a bench in Freedom Park. One day he walked up East Blvd from the park and saw the yellow Safe Place sign on the porch of the Youth Crisis Center. There he found the help he desperately needed.
This year we’re pivoting and asking people to #WalkAMileWithRobert during Safe Place Week (March 21st-27th), post a picture of their walk (or run) and use the “walk a mile” hashtag. Participants can sign-up and receive a free tee-shirt for being a part of this event: https://forms.gle/tb6QSppiHnEDiXkMA
