Many families are experiencing difficulties such as financial problems, homelessness and unemployment. And due to migration and changes in society many of these families find themselves with no one to turn to for support. This is where Safe Families can help – we have Host Families who provide a loving sanctuary where parents can safely place their children in times of crisis allowing them time to get back on their feet. Other volunteers extend the community safety net for these families by connecting them to resources, community, and other supports.
Since fully launching our program in Toronto in 2014, we have since opened Safe Families chapters in London, ON, and Winnipeg, MB. Donate now to help spread this movement of compassionate hospitality across Canada in our 150th year so more families can keep their families together and their children out of foster care!
