Pete's Place Youth Shelter

Pete's Place is the area's first and only youth shelter. We opened in 2007 as we realized our community's teens needed a safe place to go when things got rough. 

Pete's Place can provide a safe place to go while you try to work things out at home or figure out what's next. Our shelter is voluntary and free (financial need is never asked) for teens without a safe place to stay. Temporary and long-term opportunities are available. 

Pete's Place is open to anyone age 12-17, both female and male. Pete's Place, connected to the Goodwill Inn, is run by Third Level Youth Services staff, who are well-trained, caring, and non-judgmental.  If you have questions, give us a call. We're here to help!

Call us today at 231-922-4800 or 1-800-442-7315!

Pete’s Place—where our community’s vulnerable youth can find shelter, food, clothing, and a chance to succeed!
