This Sunday, April 25, is Safe Families Sunday!
Safe Families for Children (SFFC) is a collaboration among local churches, Christian families and individuals, and community agencies designed to help families in crisis by giving them a network of support. Blackhawk supports the northeast Indiana chapter of Safe Families for Children.
Through its dedicated volunteers, SFFC helps to prevent child abuse, keep children out of foster care, stabilize families, and share the light and hope of Christ in our communities.
There are a variety of ways to get involved:
- Join church-wide ministry opportunities, including freezer meal prep and donation drives throughout the year. We are looking forward to hosting another freezer meal prep day this Spring!
- Train to become a Host Family who provides parents with a loving home where they can safely place their children while getting back on their feet.
- Train to become a Family Coach to come alongside parents during the hosting, giving them support and mentorship.
- Be a Family Friend who can provide support to families in crisis (e.g. mentoring, transportation) and respite to Host Families (e.g. providing meals, babysitting).
We invite you to stop by the GO Local table in the foyer this Sunday to learn more about Safe Families and to find out how you can join the mission to love and support families in crisis with caring, compassionate community through Blackhawk.
