Be a Family Friend
Volunteer as a Family Friend
When you volunteer as a Family Friend, Safe Families for Children (Safe Families) will connect you with an at-risk family that would benefit from a healthy support system, but Family Friends can also support Host Families by providing meals, respite care, transportation, etc…”
Family Friends encourage and strengthen families in crisis so that they may thrive. Performing small tasks, such as dropping off diapers or babysitting for a few hours, provides families with support and builds relationships.
As a Family Friend, you will
- provide friendship and encouragement
- share helpful information about parenting and life
- support parents who have children staying with Host Families
- advocate for families seeking resources for their children, such as schools or mental and physical health services.
