About the Founders

Jason and deMarco (www.jasonanddemarco.com) have been touring the country for over ten years performing as a pop duo. During this time they have shared their music, empowering message and life story with many, but youth and young adults have always been their passion. From issues of teen suicide, to kids being kicked out of their homes and churches, ending up on the street, to drug abuse and self abuse, Jason and deMarco have received hundreds to thousands of emails year after year. Most of the time, they could only give them words of encouragement, forward them to resources that they were aware of and try to be a support from afar.

Through this experience the vision for SAFE was born. Jason and deMarco have witnessed so many young people in need and the only real resources for them, at least immediate resources, are emotional resources (mainly toll free hotlines), but no physical resources. Their vision is to provide a physical location for young people to have as a resource.

Ultimately, the goal for SAFE is quite simple; to establish and provide a Safe, Affirming, Family Environment for youth and young adults in need.
