Safe Families - Safe Families is a regional volunteer movement that connects the children of parents in distress with host families who have been called to open their hearts, their arms and their homes to serve those in need. The Safe Families experience starts at church, where families are invited to not only change the lives of a fellow family for better, but to enrich their own untold blessings by living out the Gospel. By hosting these vulnerable children along with support from the church, this extended family environment helps keep children safe and reunite families all in the name of Christ. For more information about our volunteer positions as host home, family friend or family coach in the Park Hills Church network, please contact Merri Lane @ 414.380.1072 or .
