Safe Families for Children

Helpline-640x360

MINISTRY DIRECTOR: Julia Bolles

Safe Families for Children is a church movement committed to protecting children from potential abuse or neglect when their families experience crisis. The church is committed to building a supportive community around families in their time of need. By temporarily placing children with certified Host Familes, parents receive the time and tools needed to help them re-establish stability for themselves and their families.

Typical placing families may experience:

  • Unemployment
  • Medical/Emotional crisis
  • Financial Problems
  • Homelessness
  • Incarceration (Jail Time)
  • Addiction Recovery Program

Placement is voluntary and parental rights are retained by the Placing Parents. Reuniting families as soon as possible is a priority.
