Safe Families Steinbach (SFS) is a testament to the incredible power of God. Our site was established almost entirely during the current pandemic, and it has been amazing to see how God has provided funding and office space in a time of economic uncertainty. We officially opened our doors on November 2, 2020.
One of our first referrals was a single mom with three young children. Due to some challenging life circumstances she is navigating, we arranged for her children to spend every other weekend with a wonderful host family for the next several months. The host family gets to love on these kids and this beautiful young woman will receive a much needed reprieve to focus on her needs and healing.
As we made the arrangements, her eyes welled up with tears.
“Do you know what you’ve given me?” she asked quietly. I shook my head.
“Hope,” she responded. “You’ve given me hope.”
Meet our Family Placement Coordinator Kelly Ducre
Kelly has years of experience in administrative work. She started off as a member of the Steering Committee for the Steinbach Safe Families site and moved into the administrative role in April 2021. She was moved to get involved with this organization so that she, and others like her, would be able to help families in crisis in a tangible way. Kelly lives on her rural property with her husband, 2 daughters, 1 dog, and 2 cats. She enjoys reading, spending time with her family, and watching the prairie sunset from her front porch.
