Description:

Safe Families for Children provides much needed support for parents in crisis, giving them time to get back on their feet while their children are cared for in a safe and loving environment.  You can play a vital role in Safe Families for Children by becoming a Family Coach to help parents in crisis get back on their feet.

As a Family Coach, you will:

  • Support the Host Family. This ensures that families get the support and resources they need to provide a safe and nurturing environment for children.
  • Monitor children’s safety. Because safety is a top priority, the Family Coach begins assessing safety within 48 hours of a child moving in with the Host Family—and each week for at least a month.
  • Provide a family in need with resources, such as community referrals and assistance in making their appointments.
  • Facilitate the relationship between the Host Family and the Family in need with compassion and empathy.

Hours:  Flexible and can be done from the comfort of your own home via Zoom calls.

Training is provided.
