Request a Family Friend or Mentor
Raising children without support from family or friends can be quite difficult. It becomes even more challenging when various stressors are added such as difficulty paying bills, under employment, etc. Connecting with another adult who can provide a listening ear and support can make all the difference in the world. Family Friends are screened and trained volunteers who can provide you with a listening ear, support, or even some guidance on how to budget, save money, and find work.
Parents can be partnered with a Family Friend when they request that their children stay with a Host Family. There are also Safe Families for Children locations that provide Family Friend relationships even when parents do not request that their children stay with a Host Family. Complete this questionnaire and we will see how we can support you.
