We’re teaming up with Safe Families for Children (SFFC) for this year’s Christmas Offering. SFFC hosts vulnerable children and creates extended family-like supports for families facing a crisis through a community of compassionate volunteers to keep children safe and families together.
Parents are referred to SFFC for a variety of reasons but mostly because of an unstable living environment or crisis. The majority of children hosted by SFFC are younger than 6 years of age, and 95% return to their parent or a relative who is in a better position to care for them. Learn more about how SFFC works to strengthen families here.
It costs SFFC about $55.90 a day to host one child. Southbridge is aiming to raise $39,130 to allow enough funding for SFFC to host 25 children for 4 weeks.
