What is Safe Families?

     Safe Families for Children is a ministry of families giving hope to parents and children in crisis (medical issues, homelessness, isolation, recovering from substance abuse and many other life challenges).

     Safe Families is a national movement of the church to help families stay out of the child welfare system and looks to provide healthy supports around the entire family.

     Volunteer families are screened and supported as they host children for a short period of time while the parent(s) handles a crisis. Parents maintain custody of their children throughout this process and Safe Families is committed to reuniting families as soon as possible.

     There are many unique opportunities to help this ministry as it supports both children and parents. You can visit safe-families.org for more details about this wonderful ministry.

     It is our desire to increase the number of volunteers and servants available for families in need. Please see the form below for more ideas on how you can help Safe Families or simply contact Joy Gray at 576-5408 or joygraysffc@gmail.com.
