Who We Are

Safe Families for Children (SFFC) of  Raleigh is committed to serving families in crisis by resourcing and partnering with the local church, where families open their hearts and lives to vulnerable children and families. Parents in need ask SFFC to host their children in the safety of the host home, while parents handle their crisis situation. The SFFC team – Circle of Support: host family, family friends, family coaches, resource families – reaches out to the placing parents as well. Our main objectives are family support and stabilization, preventing abuse and neglect, and deflecting children from unnecessarily entering the foster care system.

SFFC Raleigh launched in 2016 with the belief in the Safe Families’ vision that Jesus calls us to defend the cause of the weak and the fatherless. Our aim is to resource and equip local churches to be in the forefront of serving vulnerable children and supporting families experiencing difficult and adverse circumstances. Parents in need ask Safe Families to host their children in the safety of the host home, while parents handle their crisis situation. The SFFC team – host family, family friends, family coaches and resource families – reach out to the placing parents to provide a circle of supportive, caring community.


Who We Serve

When crisis strikes, many of us rely on family and friends for support and encouragement. But for some parents, this is not an option. Crisis can look like homelessness, unemployment, hospitalization, domestic violence, incarceration and substance abuse treatment. Our family of trained volunteers offer support, which often involves providing a loving, temporary home for children while parents deal with their crisis and get back on their feet.
