*We are addressing the Coronavirus concern with our Safe Families for Children community. Click here to learn more about the nationwide response.

Safe Families for Children creates extended family-like support for desperate families through a community of devoted volunteers motivated by compassion to keep children safe and families intact.

We organize vetted and trained volunteers from local churches to offer a broad community of support for families who feel overwhelmed or isolated. Our volunteers seek to empower, encourage, and strengthen families through mutually beneficial relationships. We seek to reduce foster care numbers by supporting families as we know that stress and isolation can lead to cases of abuse and neglect.

*Hosting is currently unavailable in NY State.


Now we have a family!” Watch this video featuring a NYC mom and volunteers: Rosa’s Story.

“These individuals came in our lives at the right time.  There is no other way to put it…I don’t know where I would have been if it wasn’t for the loving help of Safe Families. The Safe Families gave me a chance, they listened, they respected with no judgment or fear that I wasn’t being a great parent.  NYC desperately needs Safe Families.” – Mother to son, age 9
