When under-resourced families face personal or financial crises, the children are affected. Today, an alarming number of parents are socially isolated and lack family support, often compounding problems, feelings of desperation, and likelihood of child neglect or abuse and the subsequent need for foster care placement.

Safe Families for Children (SFFC) is dedicated to family support, stabilization, and most importantly, prevention of child abuse. Parents voluntarily place their children in safe, loving homes while other volunteers support the parents.

If you are interested in becoming a Safe Families volunteer, please register for one of the training sessions listed above. You may also register if you are a current volunteer who would like to update your training.
