Bethany Christian Services is the umbrella agency that runs the Safe Families for Children Ministry. Oftentimes there are families in our community who are experiencing a temporary crisis such as job loss, eviction, domestic violence or another significan life event. All too often these families, who have little or no family or community support, are left with very few alternatives for their children. 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 christian sanctuary and serves out of a sense of compassion and love.
Some of the many volunteer opportunities include: Show love and compassion to children and parents in need by becoming a Safe Family. Additional screening and training needed to become a Safe Family.
Other ways to give of time or talents to support Bethany's Safe Families ministry: providing a host family with diapers, formula, clothing, or Christmas presents, offering your professional services to a child or family in need, providing transportation for parents’ visits, supporting the family in crisis, and office support.
