Safe Refuge for Children + Families, an exciting community–church partnership, offers a hope-filled option for families in crisis by providing safe, secure, carefully screened and approved, temporary homes for children until the family crisis is stabilized. In addition, Safe Refuge expands the community safety net by providing parents in need with concrete and tangible support during times of crisis.
Safe Refuge provides a tangible way for church members to love their neighbors, practice hospitality, extend Christ-like compassion, and proclaim mercy to the most vulnerable in our communities.
Safe Refuge for Children and Families is a team effort. Calling upon volunteers in local churches, the program extends and strengthens community services for families and children at risk.
Host Families are the heart of what we do. Host Families serve by practicing hospitality and temporarily providing a warm, loving, and safe home for children of families who are in crisis. A Safe Refuge hosting is a temporary, short-term commitment that can provide long-term results for a family in crisis.
