105: Cheri Jimenez | What is a Safe Family‪?‬ Grace Enough Podcast

    • Christianity

Cheri Jimenez joins me to discuss Safe Families for Children, supporting families in crisis, and the various roles people can fill to help a family in need reach a place of stability.


Questions Cheri and I Discussed:

(4:16) Share a little of your faith journey with us.  How did you become involved with Safe Families for Children?


(7:40) What is Safe Families for Children? What is the purpose and the mission behind Safe Families?


(13:27) How does Safe Families for Children differ from foster care?


(18:57) If someone is listening, who is interested in getting involved with Safe Families, what are some of the volunteer roles they would fill?


(25:27) How does Safe Families get connected with families in need?


(30:37) Will you share 1 or 2 impact stories of families here in the Raleigh area who have come along side a family in crisis?


Quotes to Remember:
“I was brought up in a Christian home, we have a wonderful spiritual legacy. My grandparents were missionaries in Haiti for 46 years….Yy parents took over the work and the late 90s.”


“They [parents] maintain full custody. This is not something mandated by the state. They do not sign their children over…. They allow us to keep their children, so that they can make those changes necessary.”


“If we didn’t have a support system where would we be? So many of the individuals we serve just need help. So we are able to step in and through our host families…host their children while the parents get the help that they need.”


“This [Safe Families for Children] isn’t foster care.”
