Be someone's extended family

Brenda and Matt's Safe Families story

Two women speaking to each other at home

What would you do if you had a crisis in your family? Who would care for your kids?

Maybe your mom or your sister or a trusted friend. But too many families don’t have this network of support, so when the parents are vulnerable, their kids are too.

Safe Families for Children is a network of volunteers that shows up like extended family, wrapping around children and families with the support they need to get through a temporary crisis. There are lots of ways to be involved, from filling a gap in child care to hosting a child in your home while a parent is hospitalized or seeking stable housing. Brenda and Matt share how they put their faith into action as Safe Families volunteers.

Your support changes lives
