ABOUT US

a message from our president

Dear Friends and Colleagues:

Everything we do at SAFY is rooted in the belief that our communities are interconnected. When children grow up in nurturing home environments, the family unit is stronger. And strong families are the fabric of communities that flourish—where people feel safe, have opportunities and want to lay down roots. Ultimately, when our youth thrive and achieve their full potential, so does our society. This ripple effect is real and profound. I invite you to join us on our journey towards restoring this promise. Because of your support, we are making a difference.

Sincerely,

OUR
