Ways to Serve

There are three ways in which volunteer families can impact the lives of vulnerable children through Safe Families:

Host Family

Provide temporary guardianship so that the biological family can work towards gaining stability. Start your journey here.

Family Friend

Become a trusted friend in a biological family’s life through direct contact which may include providing transportation, mentor ship, helping with job searches or babysitting. Start your journey here.

Resource Friend

Support both biological or host families, directly and indirectly.  We have a constant need for donated items and resources. Start your journey here.

Current Needs

Summer months are a particularly difficult time for many of the families that we serve and we are always looking for more Host Families to get involved. If you are interested in learning about more ways to serve, please reach out to us.
