Learning more about Park Place Outreach is now just one click away.  The local non-profit organization recently launched its new easy-to-navigate Web site, www.parkplaceyes.org.
The home page, with a blue, yellow and green background, features an invitation to children who may not have a safe place to stay and directions to the shelter.
In addition, there is a message from Executive Director Linda Hilts-Lamas, stating, “My vision for Park Place Outreach, Inc. encompasses sheltering, supporting, and taking care of the needs of runaway, homeless, and in-crisis youth. In addition, we strive to broaden our range of programs serving youth and family needs while strengthening support from individuals, businesses, and foundations.”
The "history" section of the new Web site, found under the "About us" tab, explains how Park Place Outreach got its start in 1984 and how it is the only facility in Savannah and Chatham County that serves adolescents ages 11-17. 
The Web site states:  "Park Place Outreach plays an important role with the Savannah – Chatham Metropolitan Police department to reduce juvenile crime. We have many examples of young people coming to our shelter on the verge of a life of crime who have become good and productive citizens of our city."
Other featured areas of the Web site include "Youth Emergency Services," "How you can help," and "Partners."
Park Place Outreach provides emergency shelter and street outreach for adolescents ages 11 through 17 and their families. It is the only agency located within Chatham County that serves youth at no charge who are accepted without a referral to receive help.  Park Place Outreach opened in 1984. There are approximately 15-30 youth served each month and about 200 each year.  For more information on Park Place, call (912) 234-4048 or log on to www.parkplaceyes.org
