Caring for children is one way we can be an extension of God’s grace and love in the lives of at-risk and vulnerable children and families.
Safe Families for Children is an international organization – powered by volunteers – who want to keep children in vulnerable situations out of foster care.
Safe Families partners with parents who are going through a crisis by providing temporary homes for their children, usually for one-to-two months. The end goal is always reunification of the family.
Nearly 18,000 children are in foster care in Illinois. Over 3,000 are waiting for adoptive families.
Many have experienced abuse and neglect and have never known a stable family upbringing. By welcoming these children into our homes, for a week or a year, we display Christ’s love for the ones who feel most invisible.
Learn more at Lutheran Child & Family Services or Illinois DCFS.
Over 18 million children domestically and internationally need a family and a home.
We have a unique opportunity to demonstrate the gospel through adoption, and to support those pursuing adoption with prayer and practical help.
For those who have adopted, let us walk alongside you through friendship, care and support.
