Safe Families for Children of Downeast and Greater Bangor Maine Chapter is continues to build capacity in Washington, Hancock, and Penobscot Counties. We’re committed to serving families in crisis by partnering with the local church, where families open their homes and lives to vulnerable children.

Safe Families Maine started in 2010 with the first hosting arrangement in Machias, with the belief in the Safe Families’ vision that Jesus calls us to defend the cause of the vulnerable and struggling. Since our humble beginnings, we have increased the footprint of Safe Families to include a reach from Bangor to Machias. In these areas as well as Androscoggin, Cumberland Counties, Oxford and Mid-coast counties of Sagahadoc, Knox, and Lincoln, and beginning in the Mountain Region (west!)  our goals are to empower the church, unify families, and prevent children from being unnecessarily put into the foster care system.

Join us in seeing Maine communities transformed through this movement of hope and compassion!  Follow us on Facebook for updates.

If you are interested in your church being part of the Safe Families movement, please contact our Director, Dr. Robin J Chamberlain. She is available to speak at your church or event.
