Founded in 2003, Safe Families for Children surrounds families in crisis with caring, compassionate community. We are volunteer-driven and provide hope and support to families in our community.

Our vision is to create a world where children are safe and families transformed through radically compassionate communities. Our mission is to host vulnerable children and create extended family–like supports for desperate families through a community of devoted volunteers who are motivated by compassion to keep children safe and families intact. 

Get Involved: 

Become a Host Family: Open your home to a child in need.

Be a Family Friend: Encourage and strengthen families by performing small tasks.

Be a Family Coach: Provide support for host families and placing parents.

Be a Resource Friend: Donate items to families struggling with life changes.
