Be a Safe Families PLUS Mentor
A significant amount of youth in the child welfare system will never be placed in a permanent home and will exit the system with few supports or opportunities. Without the skills needed to navigate adulthood, these are the young people most at risk for human trafficking, gangs, homelessness, credit fraud, substance abuse, and unplanned pregnancy.
Safe Families PLUS (Providing Lasting Unconditional Support) Mentors are key partners in helping older youth successfully transition to adulthood. They serve as coaches, mentors, friends, and extended family to young adults who need a place to go for holidays or other celebrations. If you are interested in becoming a Safe Families PLUS Mentor and welcoming an older teenager or young adult into your family network, begin the application process here.
Please note that not all Safe Families for Children locations offer PLUS services. If it isn’t available in your area, you will be notified after you complete the application:
