SafeFamilies

The government only intervenes when children are being abused or neglected, but many families who need helpĀ are still able to take care of their children, if just barely.

Safe Families Canada is an organization that provides families in need with a safe place for their children while their parents get back on their feet. To do this, Safe Families uses Christian volunteers who willingly open up their homes to the children in need and facilitates the connection between the two families. The program has been established in over 30 states, and the Canadian branch currently operates in the GTA, but wish to expand to London, Winnipeg, and Moncton. Getting involved is easy, as people only need to volunteer at local sites and arrange for the program to be started in their local church.
