Meet Our Chapter
Safe Families for Children of Central and Southern Illinois is a network of partner agencies, churches and volunteers. We have over 100 volunteer host families in both the major regions and rural areas of downstate Illinois. Some of our locations have been involved with Safe Families for a number of years, while other locations are brand new and developing. Our referrals come from local DCFS offices, homeless shelters, women’s shelters, police and fire departments and hospitals.
Our goal as a network is to see churches, large and small, in our urban, suburban and rural settings, train and unleash their families to live out biblical hospitality. We want to truly love on children and their families who are overwhelmed, disconnected and under-supported.
