Safe Place


  • Being a child, woken up in the middle of the night by yelling and commotion, forcibly torn away from your parents and removed from your home, terrified, hungry, sad and confused.
  • Being the social worker, suddenly responsible for this traumatized child, doing your best to console them in the backseat of your car, while making call after call for placement.
  • Being a receiving care home, taking this child in, not knowing their needs, medical information, or anything else about them.

Imagine a place...

  • A warm and comforting environment with loving, trained staff and volunteers ready to receive this precious child.
  • A place where they receive warm meals, are bathed, pick out new pajamas and a cozy handmade blanket of their own. 
  • Where they are given new clothes, shoes & other basic necessities.
  • Where they can have their hand held as they receive a mandatory health exam.
  • A place where they can experience peace, get some much needed rest, and have FUN!

Now there is a Safe Place...

  • Hand in Hand provides a safe place for kids. 
  • In our Safe Place shelter, these children are provided a warm, caring environment to transition after being removed from their homes, allowing their social worker time to find placement. 
  • We are restoring hope, helping to change the story of these children's lives and believing God has amazing plans for their future.
  • You can help change the life of a foster child. Your gift of time, donations or funds, goes to meet the important needs of each child.
  • We abide by James 1:27 which reads, "Pure and genuine religion in the sight of God the Father means caring for orphans and widows in their distress, and refusing to let the world corrupt you."
