About:
Safe Families for Children creates extended family-like support for families in crisis through a community of compassionate volunteers. They keep families safe and intact by organizing vetted and trained volunteers from local churches to offer a broad community of support for families who feel overwhelmed or isolated. Volunteers seek to empower, encourage, and strengthen families through mutually beneficial relationships. Safe Families for Children seeks to prevent the need for state intervention by supporting families before stress and isolation put them at risk for neglect and abuse.
