Providing safe and healthy homes for children of families in crisis.

How can we help you?


Life can feel overwhelming especially if you don’t have a safe support system. 


We recognize that while some families can turn to relatives and friends for assistance, for others there is no safety net and a crisis can make it difficult for parents to provide a safe and stable environment for their children.  If you are experiencing trials, we can help by providing safe care for your children while you work out the challenges. Our professional staff can help arrange for your children to stay with a pre-screened, trained, and approved host family until the challenging issues you are facing have been stabilized. This can give you valuable time and support, allowing you to work out your problems without having to worry about the safety of your children. Our staff will also help you navigate resources that you may need to help your situation.


Safe Refuge for Children and Families is here to support you in your time of need.
