Safe Families for Children

Safe Families offers sanctuary to children, minimizing the risk for abuse or neglect and giving parents the time and tools they need to help their families thrive. Their goal is to strengthen families to care for children, and to care for children when families cannot. Be a host family by caring for a child in your home, walk alongside a family by offering wisdom and guidance, or provide support through material donations.

Contact Mindy Amodeo at for more information.
