‘Safe Families for Children’ ministry to hold session in Attleboro

ATTLEBORO, Mass. — A family-centered support volunteer ministry known at Safe Families for Children, will be having an informational session on Tuesday, April 17 at 7 p.m. in the St. John the Evangelist Parish Center located at One St. John’s Place in Attleboro. All those interested are welcome to attend and learn more. 

Safe Families for Children (SFFC) is a partnership ministry between Bethany Christian Services and volunteers from local churches, providing an extended network of support for families without a safety net. Volunteers can serve as short-term host families for children or young pregnant women, or can offer resource or friendship support for host families or parents in crisis. 

SFFC volunteers work together in community as they extend community. For more information, view this short video that tells the SFFC story:  https://vimeo.com/94118241

Also, at the following website, www.safe-families.org, interested persons can fill out an online interest form. 

Many members of the community have a close friend or family member to call if their family experiences a temporary crisis and they need someone to care for their child or children. This safety net is crucial in keeping families together and children safe. Unfortunately, many members of the community lack this basic safety net. SFFC trains volunteers to work together to provide safety for vulnerable families and children. 

Colleen Flaherty from SFFC will be at St John’s Parish Center, One St. John’s Place located off Route 152 in Attleboro on Tuesday, April 17 at 7 p.m. to share more about how to become involved with this volunteer ministry.
