Church Venture partnering with Safe Families
How does Safe Families work?
Safe Families surrounds families in crisis with caring, compassionate, community. Our family of volunteers provide a loving, temporary home for children while their parents deal with their crisis.
Our goal is to keep kids safe and families intact. Once a parent’s life has stabilized and the home environment is healthy, we work with parents to reunite their family as soon as possible
Parents maintain full custody of their child and are encouraged to participate in decisions regarding their child’s care while they address whatever issue led to the crisis. For some, this could mean securing housing or drug rehab. For others, it might involve leaving an abusive relationship or finding stable employment.
