Safe Families for Children

Safe Families for Children is a national movement of compassion that gives hope to families in crisis.

Safe and loving homes are provided where parents may voluntarily have their children cared for while parents seek to restore stability in their lives.

If you would like more information about providing a safe and loving home for a child in need, please contact Jenny Zabrocki.
