WISH TV will be airing a feature about Safe Families involvement in placing the displaced Haitian orphans at 5:30pm tonight. Also, our email account is up and running. Once again, we apologize but we are unable to respond to these emails individually.
Safe Families for Children provides a safe, temporary place for children whose parents are overwhelmed and have limited resources or social supports. Placements can avert immediate abuse episodes, and allow time and space for the parent to actively address issues without the threat of losing custody. In some cases, Safe Families volunteers become the extended family that a parent never had, providing encouragement and support even after the placement ends.
