Safe, Affirming, Family Environment
S.A.F.E. (Safe Affirming Family Environment) is an inclusive non-profit organization offering an online resource to current or potential affirming foster or adoptive parents, foster youth currently in foster care, foster youth aging out of foster care and those foster youth who have recently aged out of foster care and find themselves homeless. S.A.F.E. aims to provide transitional housing to foster youth aging out of foster care.
SAFE is an online based non-profit offering resources and referrals to foster youth who are either aging out of foster care and in need of local resources or those whom have recently aged out of foster care and find themselves homeless. We refer these youth to our network of agencies and organizations who offer support to these foster youth and educate them on their benefits, rights and options.
With our Helping Intended Parents (H.I.P.) program SAFE aims to educate and support those couples and individuals interested in becoming parents through fostering, adopting, or having a biological child through IVF. These intended parents are encouraged to contact SAFE for referrals in their area, ultimately helping them to achieve their goals. SAFE also works with local DCS (Department of Children's Services) offices helping to connect them with affirming foster homes for GLBTQ foster youth.
With our Referral Program SAFE refers young adults who are chronically homeless to local organizations who may be able to offer subsidized or transitional housing.
SAFE introduced the MOHO program in 2014, giving foster youth aging out an opportunity to purchase their own home in a community of homes while receiving life skill training, mentoring and other services from a local support network. SAFE aims to cover lot rent for these young adults for up to twelve months while the young adult covers their house payment, eventually taking full responsibility for their housing costs.
