Safe Families

The Mission of safe families

Safe Families seeks to provide temporary housing and support to children of families in crisis due to homeslessness, domestic violence, or hospitalization in an effort to prevent abuse or neglect. They attempt to reduce the number of children in the child welfare system by reuniting families after crisis. Rather than adoption or foster care, Safe Families gives parents a trusted place to care for their children until they are ready to come home.

How you can help: Become a host family, become a Family Friend, mentor a child, or attend a training session to learn more.
