About Us

Founded in 2003, Safe Families for Children surrounds families in crisis with caring, compassionate community. We are a volunteer-driven nonprofit that provides hope and support to families in our local communities.

Our vision is to create a world where children are safe and families transformed through radically compassionate communities. Our mission is to host vulnerable children and create extended family–like supports for desperate families through a community of devoted volunteers who are motivated by compassion to keep children safe and families intact.

In conjunction with DCFS, Safe Families PLUS provides caring mentors to youth ages 14 to 21 as they transition to adulthood. Mentors come alongside the youth to provide them with support that endures. Through consistent, one-on-one contact, mentors help youth explore their self identity, talents, strengths, and career interests.
