Safe Families for Children allows parents who are in crisis the opportunity to place their child in the home of a 'safe family' thereby giving themselves time and resources to get back on their feet. Safe Families relies heavily on the support of local businesses, churches and people to provide funding to operate. We offer a network of support for struggling families that many times end up in the foster care system unnecessarily. On average it costs Safe Families $150 to help a child in crisis while it costs $1200 for a child to be cared for in the foster care system.
