SFFC returns the church to the forefront of caring for children and families in crisis. SFCC provides a tangible way for the church to love their neighbor and impact their community. 

 

Since beginning in Chicago in 2002, Safe Families for Children has helped a variety of parents and children facing overwhelming circumstances:

  • Parents facing eviction or homelessness

  • A mother who had no one to care for her kids when sudden illness required surgery

  • A pregnant teen whose father threw her out of the house

  • Children whose parents are incarcerated or going through drug rehabilitation
