OUR FOSTER PARENTS:
SAFY foster parents play a critical role in providing services to the youth in our care. Foster parents become the substitute family for the youth while in care – be it three days or three years.
SAFY foster families are well trained and very experienced. Foster parents undergo intensive training in order to treat the specific needs of each individual child. Our foster parents are also extremely experienced and dedicated; 7% of homes have been providing foster care for more than 11 years. On average, SAFY’s foster families have been caring for foster children for more than four years. These individuals are rewarded by helping to positively change the life of a child
SAFY serves primarily difficult-to-place youth. Many of our children have been victimized and are in need of the security and support of a stable, loving home. SAFY provides services to youth who are dealing with abuse, neglect, drug and alcohol dependencies, behavioral problems, emotional disturbances, mental delays, physical challenges and special medical needs. SAFY provides children with full access to highly-skilled social workers, mental health professionals and other community-based support services
"Fostering an environment that positively impacts the lives of youth and their families . . . whether they are with us for an hour or a lifetime."
