Volunteers are 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 roles for you. It takes an entire team to surround a child and family to make this work.
Volunteer: We need an entire community of volunteers to run Safe Families- from people welcoming children into their homes to resource donations, to those willing to rock a baby for a few hours. Whether you have the ability to house a child or take them to an appointment, we have a need for you!
Host Family: Host Families are the backbone of the Safe Families movement. They are families who welcome children from struggling families into their homes and care for them while their parents work to resolve their crisis and get back on their feet.
Family Friend: Family Friends encourage & strengthen families who are at risk or in crisis. They walk alongside families as mentors & serve them by providing babysitting, assisting with house work, & driving young moms & babies to doctor appointments.
Family Coach: Family Coaches help facilitate the relationship between the host family and the family in crisis. They work closely with Safe Families staff to provide resources and community referrals to families in crisis as well as guidance and encouragement to host families.
Resource Friend: Resource Friends will wrap arms around our host families and provide support, whether that is through tangible needs, meals, prayer, transportation or babysitting.
