Safe Families For Children

Safe Families for Children

Safe Families for Children is a community service movement that serves vulnerable, isolated families in crisis situations – some of which may have the potential to lead to abuse and/or neglect. Wrapping a circle of support around these families we create extended family-like relationships, including a safe home for children to live in temporarily, that give parents space to get their lives back on track until they are in a better place to care for their children again. This network of relationships keeps children from entering the foster care system and ultimately helps keep families together.
