Safe Families for Children

Attend Info Session to Support Local West Side Families

About this Opportunity
Safe Families is a volunteer-driven ministry with the goal of keeping kids safe and families intact. They organize vetted and trained volunteers from local churches to offer individualized support for families in crisis. They aim to offer a broad community of support to those in our city who may need assistance and/or have limited resources.

Join us for a Redeemer West Side* info session and learn how you can serve as a volunteer and come alongside overwhelmed families. The roles are flexible and volunteers can offer support according to their skills, interests, and availability.

Volunteer roles:
1. Family Friend- helps parents to increase the stability of their lives, their home environment and their parenting, in order to improve the well-being of their children. They are volunteers who befriend, mentor and support parents through their crisis, helping them get back on their feet and making the home stable for them and their children.
2. Resource Friend- donates and delivers a variety of items (beds, clothes, diapers, etc.) or services (medical care, dental care, counseling, etc.) to families.
3. Family Coach- coordinates the team of volunteers, making sure that the parent, child, and family friends have the resources needed to thrive.

*This info session is primarily for congregants of Redeemer West Side, but other volunteers are also welcome to attend.
