Lydia Home Association's Fundraiser:

Help expand Safe Families for Children

THE STORY:

The idea behind Safe Families is simple: host vulnerable children and create extended family-like supports for desperate families. How is this done? Through a community of compassionate volunteers, Safe Families provides homes for kids and a network of volunteers to come alongside parents to help them get on their feet. 

Every year, the Illinois DCFS Hotline receives 250,000 calls about children in desperate situations and at-risk of being abused or neglected. Safe Families intervenes in situations before harm occurs to children, which helps to keep them out of the foster care system. The cost for a child to be in Safe Families is $500. The cost for a child in foster care is $30,000. 

How can you help? We have the opportunity to expand from our existing 75 sites. We are raising $100,000 to start 2-3 new sites ($30,000-$40,000 each) as well as enhance some existing sites. Just click on the link above to participate in this campaign or you can send a check to LYDIA Home Association (4300 W. Irving Park Road, Chicago, IL 60641).
