Safe Families For Children
Founded in 2003, Safe Families for Children surrounds families facing a crisis with caring, compassionate community. We are a volunteer-driven nonprofit that provides hope and support to families in our local communities. Located in 70 cities across the United States, United Kingdom, Canada, and beyond, we are motivated by faith to keep children safe and families together.
Safe Families for Children keeps families together. Research shows that children who grow up in their own families leads to better outcomes in terms of sense of identity, educational attainment, overall stability, and employment.
The three objectives of Safe Families for Children are:
1. Keep children safe during a family crisis such as homelessness, hospitalization, or domestic violence in an effort to prevent child abuse and/or neglect.
2. Support, and stabilize families in crisis by surrounding them with caring, compassionate community.
3. Reunite families and reduce the number of children entering the child welfare system. We seek to be an alternative to foster care, where appropriate.
