Help When It’s Needed Most


When crisis strikes -- perhaps an illness, loss of a job, eviction, substance abuse, or so much more – some families in our community don’t have a supportive network to turn to. Sadly, as the parents struggle to cope with the crisis, their children are especially at risk.

Safe Families for Children was created to offer a temporary safe home to thousands of children while freeing up their parents to focus on the crisis at hand. It also provides the parents with the support and tools they need to address the crisis so they can eventually reunite with their kids and thrive. 

Additionally, unaccompanied youth or those aging out of foster care are given the opportunity to be a part of a stable, loving family until they are ready to be out on their own.

Safe Families for Children is a international movement of local churches across the world.  Over 36,000 hosting arrangements have been made since 2003 - over 90% of children return to their parents! (
