Safe Families for Children™ is a national movement of compassion that gives hope to families in crisis. This network of host families help parents who need to temporarily place their children due to unmanageable or critical circumstances. A host family provides a loving sanctuary and serves out of a sense of compassion and love.
These children need a loving family who will walk with them during a time of crisis and welcome them unconditionally into a caring home. The goal of Bethany’s Foster Care program is to provide temporary care for children with the ultimate aim of reuniting them with their biological family or while finding an adoptive family for those whom reunification is not an option.
Often refugee families are split apart between the time they leave their home and when they arrive at a refugee camp. When this happens, family reunification is difficult and children are considered orphans. The only option for these children is to be resettled in other countries as unaccompanied minors.
