Volunteers motivated by their faith and compassion to:
do the work of biblical hospitality
welcome children into their homes
become agents of change to families in need
A few things to remember when referring someone to Safe Families
Parents retain full custody and can request the return of their children at any time.
Volunteer families are extensively screened with fingerprints, background checks and home evaluations by Twin Cedars.
Children ages 0-18 are eligible, including parenting teens.
We are committed to reuniting parents and children as soon as possible.
