Meet Our Chapter
Serving the Mid-Willamette Valley
Safe Families For Children – Mid-Willamette Valley serves Marion and Polk Counties. We are committed to surrounding families in crisis with a caring and compassionate community by partnering with the local church, where families open their homes and lives to vulnerable children. Safe Families for Children is a national family preservation movement locally implemented in Keizer, Oregon by Valor Mentoring. We are a nonprofit, volunteer movement that provides hope and support to families in our local community.
Valor Mentoring was asked to take on the Mid-Willamette Valley chapter in 2022 with the belief in the Safe Families’ vision that Jesus calls us to defend the cause of the weak and the fatherless. Our Safe Families for Children team is working tirelessly to develop a safety net for vulnerable children and families in our community. Our goals are to empower the church, unify families and deflect children from being unnecessarily put into the foster care system by resurrecting the true meaning of hospitality.
