Safe Families for Children


Meet Our Chapter

We’re an extended family for moms and dads who need one most.

That means 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.

This video, “From Surviving to Thriving in Milwaukee – Nofiyah’s Story,” tells the story of one Milwaukee mom who gained an extended family through Safe Families when she needed one most.

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.

Request a Host Family

Do you feel overwhelmed and struggle to meet the needs of your children? Would some time and space help you accomplish your goals? We’re here to help. Fill out a Host Family Request Form or call (414) 345-8715.

Request a Family Friend

Would you want to connect with another adult who can provide a listening ear and support? A Family Friendship can make all the difference in the world when you’re raising a child or children. Family Friends are screened and trained volunteers who can provide you with a listening ear, support, or even some guidance on how to budget, save money, and find work.  Fill out a Family Friend Request Form or call (414) 345-8715.
