Safe Families for Children. The week of Thanksgiving, we hosted our first child. This sweet little girl needed a safe home while her Mom could not care for her. Safe Families for Children is a nation-wide organization whose goal is to give support to parents in crisis situations who have no one to care for their children.
For most children who end up in the foster care system, there was some crisis event their parents faced which precipitate to child abuse or neglect. The goal of Safe Families for Children is to come along side parents during the crisis situation and provide a temporary home for the child without threat of loosing custody. This relief goes a long way to prevent child abuse. The goal is that the parents are equipped, the family reunited and stabilized.
