Faith in Action

Volunteers make up the heart of Safe Families. We don’t simply need your support each month, we need you! Even if you don’t have a lot of time to donate, we have a role for you. If you would like to volunteer but aren’t quite sure which role is best for you, please fill out our General Volunteer Application and our volunteer coordinator will be in touch to talk through our roles.
