About Our Chapter
Through Safe Families, we’re able to offer free services to families in need. We believe in healthy, loving families staying together and working through their challenges whenever reasonable and safe for all family members. Community-based support to build up families in their time of crisis helps the whole family thrive.
We believe it is the responsibility of the Church to meet the needs of the vulnerable and as a church-led movement, we could not do the work we do without the amazing support of our partner churches. Dallas/Ft. Worth churches of all sizes and denominational backgrounds play a significant role in recruiting and supporting their members to serve and reach out to parents who are in a crisis situation.
Our volunteers are members of various churches in the DFW area, including:
- Bent Tree Bible Fellowship – Carrollton
- First Mansfield Methodist – Mansfield
- Lantana Community Church
- Renewed Life Church
- Restoration Anglican Church – Richardson

Our Leadership Council
Our volunteer Leadership Council began in Fall 2020. Their purpose is to help steer our chapter in the right direction. The Leadership Council and responsible SFFC staff work together to ensure that the local program expression is delivering services that are current, healthy, and meeting the needs of the local community. The Leadership Council provides support and advice to the full SFFC portfolio of services and assists in the development of new opportunities. Leadership Council members also serve as ambassadors to the community, providing a connection to local leaders & members of the broader community.
Although our amazing volunteers are the ones who take the movement of Safe Families into the community, they are supported by a professional staff. Our staff passionately invest their lives in engaging churches, building the base of volunteers, transitioning children, family coach supervision, vetting and training volunteers and so much more.
