Support. Hope. Belonging.

Safe Families For Children serves families who lack social networks and live in isolation without support of family and friends dealing with crises such as homelessness, unemployment, child abuse, domestic violence, medical emergencies and alcohol/drug rehabilitation.

Are you a Parent? 

Facing life alone as a parent is hard, and when you feel there is no one there to support you, it is a scary place to be. At Safe Families we offer support, hope and belonging to improve the lives of those in our communities. We connect parents and children with local volunteers who can offer them friendship and support.
