The extended family for every family

Dr. Dave Anderson, founder of Safe Families for Children, wondered: Can neighborhoods nationwide provide families in need with the support and extended family they need before their children are put in a worse situation? Would it be possible for neighbors, churches, and the entire community to step up and come alongside families in need when life first gets overwhelming?

Safe Families for Children, a Stand Together Foundation Catalyst, provides a foster care preventive system where children are placed in a supportive family environment and temporarily cared for by host families while their parents get the help and support they need to overcome and move forward from difficult times.
