Why I Started Safe Families

“This was the calling the Lord put on my life. This was my vision for Safe Families. Now twenty years later, my heart is still stirred by unleashing the family to practice radical hospitality to support parents facing significant life stressors.

My wife Karen and I have personally hosted over 100 children over the years and firmly believe we are all called upon to open our hearts and homes to keep children safe and families together. There is a role for everyone!”
