Safe Families for Children is a Christian movement that expands the community safety net by providing parents in need with mentoring relationships and tangible support in times of crisis.
We believe children will be safe and well-cared for if families in crisis have a network of support. Volunteer families, prompted solely by compassion, mentor "at risk families" where host families open their homes to children which allows parents to work out their problems without having to worry about losing parental custody.
The Safe Families For Children movement is only successful when entire communities come together to support both volunteer and biological families. Volunteers are needed at every level to help provide for the needs of our children.
Volunteer opportunities in your area may include: Host families, material resources, professional services, mentors, case coaches and support groups.
If you are interested in volunteering, we have many opportunities for you! To learn more about volunteering, please click here to drop a note to Cindy Yost, or call her at (800) 621-8834, extension 120.
