Alexis, a Milwaukee Mom, tells her son Kai why she reached out to Safe Families for help and how it changed their lives.

When your family is in a crisis, we make our families available. We’re here to make sure you’re not alone when you know you can’t do it by yourself.

Safe Families for Children is a movement fueled by compassion and faith to keep children safe and families together. Through Host Families, Family Friends, and Family Coaches, we temporarily host children and provide a network of support while you get back on your feet. We consider it an honor to surround you with a community of families who believe in you. We’re here when you need us most.

1) Our intake/helpline is open for families – you can text, ask questions, get prayer, or ask for help from 9-5 (M, T, Th, F). The number is 414-345-8715 (ext. 1 for English, ext. 700 for Spanish). You can also request help using this link.

2) We are open to Hosting Requests. Are you in need of a safe place for your kids while you work to improve your family’s situation?  Do you temporarily need a back-up plan for your children? We have volunteers who can host your children for short, temporary times while you get back on your feet. Fill out a Host Family Request Form or call (414) 345-8715 from 9-5 (M, T, Th, F) (ext. 1 for English, ext. 700 for Spanish) . We will talk through with you to see if your family’s situation is a good fit for a hosting.

3) We are open to Family Friendship Requests: Family Friends are screened and trained volunteers who can provide a parent with a listening ear and support. Fill out a Family Friend Request Form or call (414) 345-8715 from 9-5 (M, T, Th, F) (ext. 1 for English, ext. 700 for Spanish).

4) Refer a Family. Do you know a family who could use the support of Safe Families for Children? Do you know a parent who could use a support system? We are eager to help. Fill out the referral form here. 

Unsure?  Call us at (414) 345-8715 from 9-5 (M, T, Th, F) (ext. 1 for English, ext. 700 for Spanish).
