Safe Families for Children


Safe Families for Children is a ministry created to develop ministry teams within churches to come alongside families in crisis when it would really help a parent for a loving family to care for their child(ren) for days, weeks, or months, out of the goodness of their hearts.  At the same time, a ministry team would offer the parent in crisis practical, emotional, and spiritual support to help the parent through this challenging time in their lives.

This ministry was started in the Chicago area in 2003, has spread nationally, and over 9000 children have been hosted, with 95% being able to go back home!
