One of our placing parents was excited to share about her experience utilizing our Safe Families program in the midst of a family crisis. We at ICM love when such positive connections occur between the placing and host families that the relationships continue even after the crisis is over! Read what one mom had to say about her experience.
"We are beyond thankful for Safe Families. They helped us in the midst of urgency and we have come to know and love some amazing families. The program is truly a blessing. I had many questions that did not go unanswered. Lots of reassurance from our Safe Family and Safe Families staff. I was kept up to par with everything that took place with my children while I was away, and most importantly, my children really enjoyed their stays. To this day, we remain in contact with our families and enjoy play dates with them. If I ever needed to, I would use Safe Families again with NO hesitation."

We are so grateful to Mid Central Community Action for hosting an amazing domestic violence simulation for our volunteers in Bloomington/Normal. We are also grateful for each volunteer that took the time to participate in an effort to gather information and resources that empowers them to love and serve others well! Be on the lookout for upcoming opportunities to participate in this simulation in Champaign/Urbana!
