We surround families in crisis with caring, compassionate community.
What We Do
Surrounding families in crisis with caring, compassionate community.
Safe Families for Children is a movement fueled by compassion to keep children safe and families intact. Through Host Families, Family Friends, and Family Coaches, we temporarily host children and provide a network of support to families in crisis while they get back on their feet.
We open our hearts, open our arms, and open our homes.
Our Impact Globally
Serve with Safe Families
The Safe Families experience starts at church, where families are invited to not only change the lives of a fellow family for better, but to enrich their own lives by practicing biblical hospitality. By hosting these vulnerable children, along with support from the church, this extended family environment helps keep children safe and keeps families intact.
Instead of waiting for bad things to happen to children, we can step in to help. By design, child welfare systems are designed to react AFTER something bad happens to a child. Such interventions can be necessary in cases of abuse and neglect, but we can help BEFORE bad things occur.
“Safe Families kept my family together. When I had no one and nowhere else to turn, they kept my kids safe while I got back on my feet.”
