Caring for Children starts with Caring for Parents

Facing life alone as a parent is hard, and when you feel there is no one there to support you, it is a scary place to be. At Safe Families we offer support, hope and belonging to improve the lives of those in our communities. We connect parents and children with local volunteers who can offer them friendship and support.

Our hope is for families to stay together and to live in supportive communities.

*Parents best explain how Safe Families helped strengthen their family. Watch these videos from NYC parents: Marilyn and grandson Harley, Imelda, Brandice, Rosa. This video highlights 6 different parents who share what led them to reach out to Safe Families NYC.



Relationships. Resilience. Resources.

In addition to connecting families to volunteers, we invite parents to join Mighty Village. Mighty Village provides a system of support through a community of parents who are going through similar circumstances. Mighty Village hosts workshops and Parent Cafes to equip parents in their journey. We host Parent Cafes, facilitated by a Parent Leader, where moms and dads can take a break with other NYC parents and talk about their challenges and victories in raising families. Watch this video of parents talking about the benefit of Parent Cafes.
