Saying “Yes” to Supporting Parents

by Host Family in Portland, OR

We first met Serena during the summer of 2020.  I was approached by church staff that there was a local young lady in need of some resources as she was soon expecting her first baby. I was told in order to get involved, I’d need to make it official and get involved with Safe Families. I was compelled to say “Yes” as I knew that I and the many moms around me would be happy to help her out.  Little did I know at the time that this would turn into more than giving assistance to someone in need, it would turn into a friendship.
I soon met with Serena, Micah (SFFC Program Director), and my Family Coach Deanna at Panera Bread where we shared smoothies and conversation. It was then that I learned the very difficult path Serena and her boyfriend, Derek, had been on at the young age of 19. She shared that they had been living on the streets for somewhere around four years. She confided that she was uncertain as to whether or not she was going to keep this baby who was coming in just a few short months. 

Safe Families For Children serves families who lack social networks and live in isolation without support of family and friends dealing with crises such as homelessness, unemployment, child abuse, domestic violence, medical emergencies and alcohol/drug rehabilitation.

Safe Families for Children helps provide radical hospitality to families in crisis.
