Safe Families for Children

Safe Families for Children creates extended family–like supports for desperate families through a community of devoted volunteers who are motivated by faith to keep children safe and keep families intact. In 2020 alone, our community advocates like YOU have pitched in to produce a monumental positive impact.
 
Together we’ve provided…
  • 350 nights of hosting
  • 46 days of respite
  • Provided critical basic-needs resources to over 100 local families in extreme crisis

…and reduced Yamhill County foster care placements by 20%! 

 

Make a one-time or monthly sustaining gift to keep children safe and families together long-term. 

 

Your donations help our staff maximize this volunteer movement to reach more families.

Safe Families for Children creates a safe space for children while their parents deal with a temporary crisis situation. From people opening their homes to provide shelter for children for weeks on end to people offering a simple ride across town or help with an errand, our volunteers say yes to vulnerable children and their families in both large and small ways. Anyone can help—anyone can join us in saying yes to generous hospitality, building relationships, and enabling transformation.
