Safe Families is a volunteer-driven ministry with the goal of keeping kids safe and families intact. We organize vetted and trained volunteers from local churches to offer individualized support for families in crisis. We aim to offer a broad community of support to those in our city who may need assistance and/or have limited resources.
The parents that we serve are often overwhelmed by their circumstances and socially isolated. We want the church to become their community as we form extended family-like relationships. Our volunteers seek to empower, encourage, and strengthen families through mutually beneficial relationships. We seek to reduce foster care numbers by supporting families as we know that stress and isolation can lead to abuse and neglect.
There are a variety of volunteer roles to come alongside overwhelmed families. The roles are flexible and volunteers can offer support according to their skills, interests, and availability.
To learn more, join us at our next training that will be held on Monday, April 3rd from 7-9:30pm at 1st Baptist Church on the Upper West Side. Register at: https://nycsafefamilies.eventbrite.com. Visit our website at www.newyorkcity.safe-families.org to learn more.
The coffee and bagel table after the service needs additional volunteers! This is a much appreciated service to us all. Currently, we are being served by only a few volunteers. Help out by signing up here!
