Grace Point Fellowship is dedicated to supporting Safe Families for Children. We encourage those who are led to volunteer by becoming a host family, caring for a child in your home, or becoming a family friend. We offer training at Grace Point Fellowship in our Cafe. There are always ongoing needs so please contact Rick Fraenkel with any questions about this ministry.

Safe Families for Children’s vision is to create a world where children are safe and families transformed through radically compassionate communities. Our mission is to host vulnerable children and create extended family–like supports for desperate families through a community of devoted volunteers who are motivated by compassion to keep children safe and families intact.
- we could stop child abuse before it starts?
- it wasn’t a shameful experience for at-risk families to ask for help?
- single moms were connected to support instead of socially isolated?
- local government, non-profits, and churches worked together to help families in crisis?
- a family’s safety net was their neighbors instead of the government?
- you didn’t have to ‘qualify’ to be cared for?
- children and teens could be protected during times of crisis without being permanently separated from their parents?
Safe Families for Children is the answer.
94% of children hosted in a Safe Family return home and will never be the subject of an abuse or neglect allegation.
Isolation is the most significant contributing factor to child abuse. Through Safe Families for Children, parents step out of isolation and into relationships, reducing the risk of child abuse.
- earn a high school diploma and college degree
- be employed and have health insurance
- decrease welfare dependency
- avoid incarceration
Becoming a Safe Families for Children Volunteer is easy and rewarding.
As a Host Family, caring for a child in your home, or a Family Friend, standing alongside a family offering wisdom and guidance or providing essential support through material goods, you will impact your community for good and potentially help a family chart a course to sustained health and success.
Areas of involvement to consider:
- Host Family: Voluntarily host children in your home on a temporary basis.
- Family Friend: Encourage and support host families and families in need.
- Resource Friend: Provide goods & services to families in need. (meals, gas, groceries)
- Family Coach: Help families in need reach their goals and provide encouragement to host families
- Donate/Raise Funds: Your financial support keeps children safe and families intact
- Pray: Pray for families in crisis, our volunteers, our staff, and the movement
- Host a Home Gathering:
- Assist w/Administrative Tasks: Phone Calls, emails, data entry
- Become a Circle of Support for One Family: Provide clothing, food, transportation or other items to support family.
IMMEDIATE NEEDS & UPDATES
September 10th 2021 – Need help ASAP!
We are working with an amazing family from Eagle Point who has a legally blind 13 year old son, they need to travel to Washington to visit the campus at the Washington State School for the Blind. This school would be an amazing fit for him and help him succeed academically in ways that he just won’t be able to do here. This family runs on a tight, and limited, budget. We are reaching out for help with gas cards, and maybe a hotel, for them (mom and son) to help support this trip.
God Bless: Eric
Male Mentor Needed– (June 2021) HC is an 11-year-old male who will be attending Scenic Middle School next year. This youth is currently living at HWAM. We are hoping to reunite him with his mom and 2 younger siblings. He would love someone to take him to ice cream, go fishing, hiking, etc. He very much enjoys art and making things with boxes. He is lacking in male role-models and connections and as we know this can be so impactful. Please contact your Ministry Lead or Heather (541-95-4289) if you are interested in connecting with and mentoring this youth. The mentor commitment is 2 1×1 visits a month and 2 phone or text contact.
Circle of Support Needed: The mom of the youth listed above is in desperate need of a circle of support. What’s a circle of support? Someone (or a team of someone’s) who build connection and relationship with the family. This momma is isolated and we know the #1 risk factor to families is isolation. Mom has a fantastic professional team, but could use relationship and a church she and the kids could engage with. Someone to bring dinner or take her to coffee (she can pay her part) and love on this family.
School Clothes- One of our former Safe Families youth has reached out for help getting her siblings school clothes. Her mom is disabled and she is the primary caretaker. They are needing: Woman’s sizes- 13 pants, XL shirts, and size 7.5 shoes. Boys- Size 9 BOYS pants, size 7/8 in shirts and we don’t know the shoe size just yet. This is an amazing family, who has had some very unfortunate struggles, please let your ministry lead or Heather (541-951-4289) know if you can help.
Gift Cards- Grocery, Gas, Haircuts Gift Cards- When we get these, we quickly disperse them to our hosting parents. I cannot express how much these little things help!
Thankful for everyone who’s loved on our Safe Families, throughout the summer we have been blessed with and delivering Gift Cards, food and supplies to all our Host Homes.
Thank you for all the effort to build our volunteer base!
