SAFY is Preserving Families & Securing Futures

Since our founding in Lima, Ohio in 1984, our work has rested on a single, radical idea – children belong in families. Every child and family deserves the opportunity to reach their full potential.  We are an extraordinary team of 500 employees in seven states including Alabama, Colorado, Indiana, Kentucky, Nevada, Ohio and South Carolina who provide safety and healing so families and children can build resilience and thrive.
