Family Friend (Safe Families for Children)
A Family Friend works with the Host Family (see additional volunteer listing) and the family in crisis under the Safe Families for Children model. While the Host Family provides care for the children, the Family Friend does just what their title implies: provide help to the Host Family, whether in the form of meals, respite care, transportation, or other helpful tasks, They also spend time with the parents of the children, coaching and mentoring them.
