  • About us

    founded in 2005

    The history

    Our Safe Place began when Larry and Bonnie Liss bought the building which nonprofit, A Safe Haven was using to house people facing homelessness. The mission of housing people in need continues to this day with Larry and Bonnie's son, Andy helping handle many of the day-to-day operations.

    The funding

    A 501(c)(3) nonprofit, Our Safe Place receives funding from the Behavioral Health Division Community Access to Recovery Services. After an allotted amount of time determined by the Behavioral Health Division, residents begin to pay rent with a variety of payment options.

    The residents

    Our Safe Place has a capacity of 50 residents. There is a waitlist to become a resident. Potential residents can call or email to join the waitlist. You can check your spot on the waitlist by calling the office.

    The community

    The people living at Our Safe Place are in recovery from substance abuse. The building offers a community focused on recovery with rules to make Our Safe Place a healthy living environment. These rules include: no drugs or alcohol, a curfew, select visitor times, random drug tests and more. A full list of rules and guidelines can be provided upon request.
