What is Safe Families?
Safe Families is a volunteer movement that connects the children of parents in distress wit host families who have been called to open their hearts, their arms and their homes to serve those in need. The Safe Families experience starts at church, where families are invited to not only change the lives of a fellow family for better, but to enrich their own with untold blessings by living out the gospel. By hosting these vulnerable children along with support from their church, this extended family environment helps keep children safe and reunite families all in the name of Christ.
What can we do? Come learn more at our education and support event on the 21st in the sanctuary at 6:30pm. Open your mind and heart to service right here in our community!
