Challenge

Hurricane Harvey continues to intensify into a life-threatening storm, putting children and families at risk. Save the Children is offering assistance to Texas state officials, and is working with the Red Cross and local partners to establish Child Friendly Spaces in evacuation shelters in areas that will be disrupted by the storm.

Solution

Save the Children's Child Friendly Spaces are safe, designated areas where children can play, socialize and begin to recover after a disaster. They are run by trained staff members and give parents a supportive place to leave their children while attending to their family's immediate and longer-term needs.

Long-Term Impact

Children are always among the most vulnerable when crisis strikes. Offering them a safe place during times of disruption and uncertainty allows them to have much-needed fun again, while building their resiliency.
