Thanks to our ZCML Members for their donations to Safe Families for Children with goals to prevent child abuse and neglect and reduce the number of children entering the child welfare system and support and stabilize families. They engage families via faith communities to open their homes to care for vulnerable children. Safe Families for Children has nearly 7,000 children placed into 1,400 Host Family homes. They currently have more than 1,000 Host Families opening their homes to more than 1,000 children each year. 75% of children placed are under the age of 6 years old. Over 90% of the kids return to their parents or a relative that is identified to take over.
