Safe Families for Children
Safe Families for Children is a national movement of compassion that gives hope to families in crisis. This network of host families help parents who need to temporarily place their children due to unmanageable or critical circumstances. A host family provides a loving sanctuary and serves out of a sense of compassion and love. Safe Families is not foster care or adoption. Parents voluntarily place their children with the host family. Children who are hosted are not believed to be victims of abuse and neglect. The goal of the Safe Families ministry is to offer support in a time of need and reunite children with their families in a stronger, more healthy home environment as parents are given time to establish stability in their homes. For more information about the Oak Hills Safe Families team, contact Emily Hooey at the number above.
