Youth M.O.V.E. Idaho
Virtual Drop In Center
In our new virtual drop in center, youth from across Idaho are able to socialize online, decompress, and connect with peers in a safe space on Discord. Youth M.O.V.E. is free to all participants. While this is not a therapy group, we can offer additional resources for youth struggling in their own mental health challenges.

Coeur d'Alene Youth
Resiliency Circle

The goal of this 12 week, in-person, closed group is to provide support and resiliency skills for teens (ages 14-18) who have been impacted by sexual abuse and/or sexual assault. Safe Passage "believes in a trauma-informed and empowerment-based approach."
*All Safe Passage services, including this group, are free & confidential.
