Welcome to Safe Families for Children – Abilene!
Abilene’s low cost of living, abundant parks, zoo and large student population give it a modern feel, but a stroll through the city’s historic downtown reveals a Texas town twang. When you dig into the community though, you learn that Abilene also has a lot of families struggling and in need of support.
Safe Families for Children surrounds families in crisis with caring, compassionate community in Abilene and beyond. We are a nonprofit, volunteer movement that provides hope and support to families in our local community.
We create an extended family–like supports for desperate families through a community of devoted volunteers who are motivated by faith to keep children safe and keep families intact.
