Get Help

Do you feel overwhelmed and struggle to meet the needs of your children? 

We’re here to help.

Safe Families Canada is a network of families who volunteer to care for your children for as long as you need. Our goal is to keep your family intact. Once you feel like you and your home environment is stable and healthy we’ll work with you to reunite your family as soon as possible.

As the biological parent (or legal guardian) you maintain full custody of your children, and, you are encouraged to participate in decisions regarding their care while they are being hosted. Our aim is to form a partnership between you and the volunteer families and see the Host Family as extended family. We encourage the relationship to continue even after your children return home.

Many parents need help and support but don’t need their children to stay with a Host Family. Our Family Coaches and Family Friends can provide you with support and guidance, such as helping you to find work or secure an apartment. Request a Family Friend
