Safe Families for Children

Rockford

Volunteer Application

A host family takes children into their home while a parent is working through a difficult situation. Hostings last anywhere from a couple of days up to one year with the average being 6 weeks. Families who would like to provide overnight respite to a host family, also need to complete the authorization process for a host home. Complete the application below to start the process for host family authorization.

A family coach supports the host family, hosted child, and parents in need. Volunteer family coaches visit the host home weekly,  facilitate visits between the hosted child and parent in need, and help the parent secure the appropriate resources to help them move from crisis to stability. If you would like to serve as a family coach, download the application below, complete the application, and then email it to Molly Loomis at mloomis@safefamilies.net.
