MONTEREY COUNTY — Community Human Services recently received $3,000 from the Monterey Peninsula Volunteer Services Benefit Shop. This grant will provide direct assistance to the youth at Safe Place, Monterey County’s only comprehensive program for homeless and runaway youth.
Programs assist homeless youth in their efforts to achieve self-sufficiency and stability in their lives while meeting their immediate needs and providing a safe and supportive environment.
Safe Place provides youth with everything from street outreach, survival aid and emergency shelter to counseling, family reunification and aftercare.
MPVS is an all-women’s volunteer organization that runs a Benefit Shop in order to raise money to give to worthy nonprofit groups on the greater Monterey Peninsula. To help continue this philanthropy, the community is invited to visit their shop at 655 Broadway in Seaside or go online to mpvsthriftshop.org.
Since 1969, Community Human Services has provided professional, affordable mental health, substance abuse and homeless services to the residents of Monterey County. Services focus on the entire family and include programs for people of all ages.
