Starting on #GivingTuesday, November, 29, 2016, through the month of December, we are collecting donations that will change lives in Northern Illinois.
WHO WE ARE: Safe Families for Children is a movement of compassion where the local church and volunteers partner to walk alongside families in crisis. Screened volunteers open their both their homes and lives, creating a safe harbor for children in crisis, while their parents or guardians receive coaching and support to gain stability for their family.
WHO WE SERVE: Children ages birth through 18 years old, including pregnant and parenting teenagers. Every child we serve is a potential deflection from an overwhelmed foster care system. By reaching families on a volunteer basis, we are able form a bond with the parents, while helping them establish attainable life goals, set healthy boundaries and cultivate relationships that will provide stability. There is no charge for this service and volunteers are not compensated financially for their participation. Your donation is needed. Please watch the video or go to http://safe-families.org/ for more information or to sign up to volunteer.
