Safe Families for Children
Safe Families for Children is a network of volunteer host families that extends the community safety net by providing parents with a loving respite home where they can safely place their children in times of crisis, such as illness, incarceration, homelessness, substance abuse or domestic violence.
Mission Benedict in Mount Angel recently celebrated its 30th anniversary. The mission serves more than 2,000 people needing food or other urgent assistance annually. Volunteers gather weekly to sort and organize food and other items to help families who come during open hours.
St. Joseph Family Shelter
Do you have or want experience supporting children and families in difficult circumstances? The Exchange Club Parent Aide Volunteer Program helps volunteers develop supportive relationships with families to strengthen parent-child relationships, build parenting skills, reduce stress and increase child safety.
