Request a Host Family

Do you feel overwhelmed and struggle to meet the needs of your children? Safe Families for Children (Safe Families) is here to help you. We are a network of families who volunteer to care for your children for as long as you need. Request a Host Family or get answers to questions you may have before contacting us. Learn more.

Request a Family Friend or Mentor

Many parents need help and support but don’t need their children to stay with a Host Family. Our Family Coaches can provide you with support and guidance, such as helping you to find work or secure an apartment. Please call or e-mail us, and we will contact you soon. Learn more.

Refer a Family in Need

If you know of a child or family who would benefit from the Safe Families for Children program, we are eager to partner with you. Learn more.
