Safe Families for Children
Safe Families for Children creates extended family-like supports for desperate families through a community of devoted volunteers who are motivated by faith to keep children safe and keep families intact. There are a variety of ways to serve including General Supporters, Host Family, Family Friend, Family Coach, and Resource Friend.
If you are looking for a truly rewarding and challenging experience, consider becoming a Safe Families Host Family. You will make a lasting impression on a child in need and possibly change the trajectory of a family in crisis. Host Families serve as the backbone of the Safe Families movement. Without families opening their homes and opening their hearts, we could not care for vulnerable children in our communities.
