Safe Families program lends children and parents a helping hand
A nationwide charity called Safe Families for Children allows parents to voluntarily surrender their children for days, weeks, or months, to a family who will care for them for free. Unlike the foster care system, the state does not take custody of the kids: families do. When the parents are back on their feet, the children can return to their loving moms and dads.
