Meet Our Chapter
CHAPTER UPDATE: SFFC is still committed to caring for families in the midst of crisis and has been considered an “Essential Service.” Safe Families will continue hosting children and helping families in crisis. We believe the need for support to families will only increase in the coming days. We thank our referring agencies, local churches, and Host Family volunteers who continue to be the hands and feet of Jesus.
Who we Are
Safe Families for Children of Central Indiana is one of the largest Safe Families chapters. We are committed to serving families in crisis by partnering with the local church, where host families open their homes and hearts to vulnerable children.
Our chapter started in 2008 with belief in the Safe Families’ vision that Jesus calls us to defend the cause of the weak and the fatherless. Since our humble beginnings, we have increased the footprint of Safe Families to include most of the state of Indiana with our chapter being responsible for Central Indiana. In these areas, our goals are to empower the church, unify families and deflect children from being unnecessarily put into the foster care system.
