Help support the work of Safe Families in Jay County!

Jay County - Safe Families for Children

Safe Families creates an extended family - you can help

Through SFFC, host families receive no compensation for caring for children, and parents voluntarily place their children with them. This temporary care for children in need gives parents time to establish stability in their homes. Host families care for children whose families are in crisis. 

Safe Families helps try to support the family, prevent child abuse & neglect, and works to help stabilize the family.

If you have any questions about Safe Families please contact us!

Host Family

A host volunteers to host children in need in their home. Hostings can range from overnight - a few months.

Respite families who can help a few weeks/weekends a year are also needed.

Family Coach

Family Coaches volunteer to check in on the host family and the child staying in their home. Coaches provide encouragement to host families and the placing parent. Case loads can be either one case at a time, or multiple depending on availability.

Safe Families Church

Safe Families Churches help with promoting the ministry of Safe Families as well as encouraging the volunteers.

Churches can help by donations of needed items, host training events, etc.
