Join the Movement

Safe Families for Children is a family preservation movement motivated by radical hospitality, disruptive generosity, and intentional compassion to keep children safe and families together. We bring church and community together mobilizing an army of volunteers to advocate for vulnerable children and socially isolated families. Our goal is to grow a national movement of change agents passionate about protecting children and preserving families in communities across the nation and the world.

Holy Spaghetti!

When Jesus showed up at my house, he had intestinal worms and ate three plates of spaghetti. He loved toy trains, and as a non-verbal four-year-old, he mostly grunted at the members of my family. When you fed one of the least of the hungry people, you fed me, he had written in Matthew 25. And here he was, tiny, odd-smelling, and vulnerable. His family was homeless and needed a place for him to stay for a couple of weeks while they sorted out a few things. He ate our food, disrupted our lives, and stole our hearts.

My wife and I started taking care of kids to help be a solution for some of the brokenness in our community. We have more than what we need, so we could share. After all, the writers of the Bible continually outline a theme of hospitality toward widows, orphans, and refugees. “When you give a feast, invite the poor, the cripple, the lame, the blind, and you will be blessed because they cannot repay you,” Jesus said in Luke 14:13-14 ESV. You display the grace inherent in God’s nature when you “share your bread with the hungry and bring the homeless poor into your house” (Isaiah 58:7).

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.
