Safe Place
Everett Transit (ET) and Cocoon House have partnered with National Safe Place, a program designed to facilitate access to supportive resources for young people in crisis.

 

Beginning Friday, Nov. 1, Everett Transit will serve as a Safe Place site, channeling teens in crisis toward the resources offered by Cocoon House.


Everett Transit is the second public transportation agency in the state to support the Safe Place network. The well-known red and gray buses now display the Safe Place logo, making them easily identifiable as a safe point of contact. King County Metro has been involved in the program since 2011.

When a youth sees the Safe Place logo on an Everett Transit bus or building he or she will know it’s a safe place to ask for help. Transit staff will connect teens seeking help with Cocoon House staff who are available 24 hours a day and are specially trained to provide assistance, whether that means getting them home safely, giving them access to housing, or connecting them with other needed services. Immediate access to those resources is critical for any youth in a crisis situation, and Cocoon House is well-equipped to provide assistance and advocacy to troubled youth.

Cocoon House provides emergency shelter, long-term transitional housing, outreach, and essential services to teens ages 13-17 in Snohomish County. Through Cocoon House, homeless and at-risk youth can receive case management, housing and counseling referrals, employment and education training, hot meals, clothes and hygiene supplies.

With community partners like Everett Transit offering an immediate respite for at-risk youth, one of the biggest obstacles to reaching out for help is addressed.

Safe Place began in Kentucky in the early 1980s and has programs in nearly every state.

Travel Training
Never ridden a bus? ET offers travel training for individuals or small groups when assistance is needed learning how to ride a bus, read a bus schedule or understanding how to transfer. Trips are generally conducted on weekdays from 7:30 a.m. to 4 p.m.

Caseworkers, teachers and chaperones are welcome to attend travel training as well. The training is free and requires scheduling at least two weeks in advance. Session length is variable; a lot depends on the person or group that is learning how to utilize the system. We want to help you learn and will tailor the travel training to fit your needs. To schedule a training session, please call 425-257-7777 to schedule an appointment.
