About Our Chapter
Safe Families for Children – Central PA operates in collaboration with Bethany Christian Services, a global and local nonprofit organization providing quality social services to children and families. Safe Families for Children is aligned with the goal of keeping families together, a component of the Bethany Christian Services mission. The movement of SFFC keeps families together by hosting children and supporting parents through a temporary crisis. It is a preventative, non-coercive alternative to foster care driven by volunteers motivated by Christian hospitality and supported by professionals. SFFC Central PA currently has 14 partner churches, 22 organizational partners and also collaborates with various shelters, hospitals, schools, and mental health facilities.
Our team of compassionate and experienced professionals work together with trained volunteers to meet the needs of families struggling through a tough time. The team is passionate about the church coming around these families by connecting them to local resources while also providing a stable, extended support system.
