Request a Host Family

Do You Need a Host Family?

If you feel overwhelmed and struggle to meet your children’s needs, Safe Families for Children (Safe Families) can help. Our network of families volunteer to care for your children for as long as you need. Thousands of parents have entrusted us to help give them the space and time they need to get on their feet—and both parents and children often grow to regard our Host Families as extended family.

To help you, we first need some information about your children to ensure a smooth transition. Please call us or fill out this questionnaire to let us know how long you think you want your kids to stay with a Host Family and to give us insights into your family’s daily routine:

  • What do your children like to eat?
  • When do they go to sleep?
  • Do they have any allergies or health problems?

The information you provide will help us find the right Host Family for you, and we will arrange for your children to be picked up. A Family Coach will be assigned to help you get on your feet.

If you have questions before you request a Host Family, get answers to commonly asked questions or contact your local chapter.
