Thank you for those who helped us celebrate 15 Years of Courage! You can replay some of the action here: REPLAY

We celebrated 15 years of providing caring, compassionate community to families in need! The night was all about courageous love. The courage to place your child in the care of strangers…The courage to take in a stranger’s child…The courage to carve out a better future for your family…The courage to extend grace and mercy to a neighbor in need…It was a special night of sharing and worship.

A look back at the last 15 years has included:

35,000+ hostings

25,000+ volunteers

4,600 churches

108 chapters

and, 2 sister organizations in the UK and Canada

People from all over the country attended as we looked back and forward to the next 15 years of living out love! We were joined by the delightful Bob Goff, author of Love Does and Everybody Always, and blessed by the sounds of Vertical Worship.

“Back in 2003, when Safe Families for Children was launched, my wife and I knew the Church was the perfect vehicle to care for vulnerable children. Returning the Church to its historic role of caring for the orphan and the widow. Now we’re able to keep children safe and keep families intact through living out love to our neighbors in need.”

– Dr. Dave Anderson, Founder & Executive Director of Safe Families for ChildrenĀ
