Safe Families for Children


Meet Our Chapter

Welcome to Safe Families for Children Greater Milwaukee!

We are so glad you are here. Your family matters to us.   

We are a group of volunteers surrounding families in crisis with caring, compassionate community.  Everyone needs a friend, a good neighbor, and a safety net to rely on.

We want to serve you well and ensure we find the right kind of support that is customized for you and your family’s needs.  There are two distinct pathways – please identify which pathway fits your situation best:

  • FAMILY FRIEND: Are you a parent seeking personal support and/or need short breaks from your children that include positive activities with other caring people?  Do you want to improve and stabilize your home environment for everyone’s well-being?  Fill out a Family Friend Request Form or call (414) 345-8715.
  • HOST FAMILY: Are you a parent experiencing crisis, in need of personal support, and in need of temporary, longer periods of care for your children (utilizing a host family) to keep them safe?  Fill out a Host Family Request Form or call (414) 345-8715.

Referrals: Do you know a family who could use the support of Safe Families for Children? We are eager to help. Fill out the referral form here. 

Unsure?  Call our intake and information volunteers at (414) 345-8715 Monday-Friday 9am-5 pm.
