Safe families for Children provides a loving sanctuary where parents can safely and voluntarily place their children in times of need. Founded in 2002 by LYDIA Home Association, a Chicago based Christian social service agency, Safe Families for Children has partnered with the local church to grow to a network of over 11,000 volunteers which includes 2100 volunteer host families. This network of vo

lunteers has been able to provide as many as 8600 hosting arrangements since the start of the program. There are currently 54 active sites, successfully established in more than 25 states across the United States alone. This has also become a global movement with sites now in Canada and the UK. Safe Families partners with host agencies, local churches, ministries, as well as community and government agencies to intervene in the lives of children and families that would otherwise be forgotten.

Click Below to Give!

A supporting church recently shared some wonderful news! They plan to donate a whole, processed beef to the Baptist Childrenโ€™s Home.

The church also wants to put out a MATCHING GIFT CHALLENGE for two sides of beef. In other words, they are encouraging churches, families, or individuals to match their gift. This will DOUBLE the beef we receive and provide our houseparents with an excellent variety of meats for preparing meals!
