About Our Chapter
We currently have over 25 active volunteer Host Families serving in the Greater Portland Area who are supported by a team of volunteers who provide services of transportation, mentoring, employment assistance or needed, tangible items such as diapers, car seats or meals.
Many area churches play a significant role in recruiting and supporting their people to serve and reach out to parents who are in a crisis situation. Churches of all sizes and various denominational or non-denominational backgrounds are active partners with Safe Families for Children of Greater Portland
Our volunteers come from the smallest to largest congregations, as all followers of Jesus are awakening to the urgent need of struggling families in our own cities and towns.
Although our amazing volunteers are the ones who take the movement of Safe Families for Children into the community, they are supported by a professional staff. Our staff passionately invest their lives in engaging churches, building the base of volunteers, transitioning children, family coach supervision, vetting and training volunteers and so much more.
