We do our best to reach people for Christ, but what if we are actually shooting ourselves in the foot and don't even realize it? This series will uncover some of the unchurched world's biggest objections to Christianity and what we have to say. Perhaps if we remedy some of these situations, we might better earn the right to be heard.

Safe Families for Children
What is Safe Families for Children?
Safe Families for Children is a national faith-based movement of compassion that gives hope to families in crisis. At its core are Christian families who practice Biblical hospitality by opening their homes to vulnerable children and reaching out to the parents of these children who are struggling to escape the effects of poverty and social isolation.
The single biggest factor influencing the lives and outcomes of children is their family. Many families in at-risk environments have good intentions but lack the family support needed to assist them in times of crisis. The children in a family traumatized by crisis become especially at risk for neglect or abuse as their parents struggle alone to cope with crushing circumstances and emotions. By law and policy, most state child welfare agencies are allowed to aid only children who have suffered blatant abuse or neglect, leaving thousands of children and their families in difficult situations. Without assistance, many of these situations will lead to abuse/neglect episodes with long-lasting consequences for the child.
The Safe Families Solution
Safe Families for Children (SFFC) is a network of host families that extends the community safety net by providing parents in need a loving home where they can safely place their children in time of crisis. Host Families, prompted solely by compassion, are screened, trained and serve without compensation. As a result, SFFC is a voluntary, non-coercive alternative to the state child welfare system. By temporarily freeing parents from the responsibility of caring for their child, SFFC provides them with time to address personal issues without fear of losing custody. In addition, Host Families and volunteer Family Coaches come alongside the parents, giving them support and mentorship and often becoming and extended family to them after the children return home.
WAYS TO GET INVOLVED
- Become a host family
- Become a family coach
- Become a family friend
- Offer professional services
- Join the prayer team
Cares for children in the home while also ministering to the placing parents. Prompted solely by compassion, each host family is screened and approved (background checks, fingerprints, home evaluation, etc.) Safe Families for Children may serve children of all ages, but each individual Host Family determines the profile of the children they are able to host in their home.
Facilitates the relationship between the placing parents and the host family during a placement. Their two primary areas of ministry are:
- Supporting the host family and ensuring the well-being of the children in care
- Providing support and mentorship to the placing parents. (Experience in social work is highly valued but not required.)
We believe prayer is crucial to the ministry of Safe Families for Children. You can join this team by receiving monthly updates via email or by being matched with a host family to pray for them throughout a placement.
Family Friends come alongside the Host Family and/or placing parents to provide encouragement and support during the time of placement which could include:
