Safe, Affirming, Family Environment
Creating a world where EVERY heart has a home.
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. In the summer of 2015 we will offer transitional housing to two foster youth in Middle TN, beginning our official transitional living program. We are currently raising $25,000 to launch this program.

SAFE aims to educate, recruit and connect those couples and individuals interested in becoming foster parents with local DCS (Department of Children's Services) while offering the ranch as a space for current foster families to connect and feel supported. SAFE also aims to help connect affirming foster homes with DCS case managers.
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 concept in 2014; a vision to provide foster youth aging out an opportunity to purchase their own manufactured home, or 'tiny house', 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.
