Meet Our Chapter
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 remains open for families – you can text, ask questions, talk, get prayer, or ask for help from 8:30-5:00 pm, M-F. The number is 414-345-8715 (ext. 0 for English, ext. 1 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 due to Covid-19? 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 (ext. 0 for English, ext. 1 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 (ext. 0 for English, ext. 1 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 has been negatively impacted by Covid-19 and could use a support system? We are eager to help. Fill out the referral form here.
Unsure? Call us at (414) 345-8715 (ext. 0 for English, ext. 1 for Spanish) Monday-Friday 9 am-5 pm.
