The heart of Safe Families for Children is to support these parents in crisis, getting them back on their feet again. We are forever grateful for the parents that volunteer their own home to those children in crisis and building community with those who are vulnerable.
By volunteering with Safe Families, you can display the radical hospitality to the vulnerable and hurting and keep one more family together.
At Safe Families for Children, we believe in the power of a solid relationship, surrounding these families with caring, compassionate community, makes all the difference.
There are many ways to get involved with Safe Families for Children. From becoming “host family” for those vulnerable children, to a “family friend” who encourages and supports the family in crisis.
We remind you that the need for radical hospitality and amazing community is greater than ever. In seasons of uncertainty, we understand how difficult it may be to consider opening your home to the unknown, in just the slightest way.
