The Safe Families program provides the church with an opportunity to bring the compassion of Christ to help families in distress (James 1:27). Christian families have the opportunity to open up their homes to children from families in crisis until the parents are able to receive their children back. This program has expanded into 14 locations throughout the country, has received a great deal of positive attention from the national media, and won the 2010 Drucker Award for Nonprofit Innovation.
