Meet our Chapter Director Tim Van Hoffen!

Tim and his wife have spent over 30 years serving children in various capacities as volunteers. Inspired by the way an international organization was mobilizing the local church to serve the vulnerable families within their communities the connection to how Safe Families was serving families in crisis here in Canada was obvious. The early history of Safe Families here in Niagara has only served to increase his conviction that God is using Safe Families to bring restoration to families in crisis while at the same time using this work to grow His people in love for our neighbour and Christ likeness.


     “Is not this the fast that I choose: to loose the bonds of wickedness, to undo the straps of the yoke, to let the oppressed go free, and to break every yoke?
     Is it not to share your bread with the hungry and bring the homeless poor into your house; when you see the naked, to cover him, and not to hide yourself from your own flesh?     
     Then shall your light break forth like the dawn, -Isaiah 58:6-8
