Valparaiso Chapter

About Our Chapter

We can help in a family crisis!

If your family is facing a crisis because of homelessness, medical emergency, utilities have been shut off, or a recent job loss — we can help!

Safe Families is not adoption or foster care, and parents keep full custody of their children while in a Safe Families stay. Worried about losing your child? Call us today to get help! (219) 465-777

We have volunteers available to help in the following counties: Lake, Porter, LaPorte, St. Joseph, Elkhart, Jasper, Newton, Starke, White, and Tippecanoe. We are located in South Bend, Elkhart, Lafayette, Valparaiso, and in other areas of Northwest Indiana.

Our Churches

Most of our families are connected with a local Northern Indiana Church. Would you or your church like to be involved? Email us today to get started! We would love for you to join the great work of Northern Indiana Safe Families for Children!

Our Team

Our team consists of staff members of Baptist Children’s Home. Why? Baptist Children’s Home is a Licensed Child Placing Agency (LCPA). The State of Indiana licenses us to care for children because we continually show that our staff, childcare practices, background checks, and other policies are excellent. We value the safety of the children in our care, and our license verifies that safety measures are put in place.

Northern Indiana volunteers are so vital to this ministry! Many volunteers graciously help us meet the needs of children in the Northern Indiana area. Join our team today! Get your volunteer journey started by clicking here!
