Meet Katie! Katie is one of our Family Success Managers and has been with SAFFT for a little over a year. We asked Katie to tell us a little more about herself and the impact SAFFT is making on the families we serve and here is what she had to say:

“Several parents have told me in the past that they feel like they are heard and understood at SAFFT and that everyone here is nice to them. I think that makes a difference in their lives because most places they go, it seems like they feel judged or alienated. I’ve seen SAFFT make a difference in foster parents and foster children’s lives by offering duffel bags filled with new clothing and hygiene items.  It seems like a huge relief when we can save people some money on necessities like toothpaste and school clothes.

Our play rooms are kind of unique because they’re set up in a way that is supposed to feel like home. A lot of people have expressed that they enjoy spending time with their children here because it feels comfortable and allows them to do things they wish they could do at home like play board games, watch movies, and work on homework at the table.”

#HopeForTheHolidays Campaign!

As the season for gratitude, giving, and spreading joy and cheer is in full swing, we want to express our sincere thanks to you for everything you do to support our community!

As we enjoy our families this season, let us remember that children in foster care want to experience that same joy, cheer, and love within their families.

Today, we launch our #HopeForTheHolidays campaign!  With your help, we can ensure that holistic services are provided to children in foster care that support permanency through reunification or adoption!

 Please help us spread hope! Your support is crucial to our efforts to alleviate the generational cycle of child abuse, addiction, child neglect, homelessness, unemployment, and severe poverty.

If you’re able, please make a tax-deductible donation of any amount to help us achieve our mission!  Just click the button below!
