About Our Chapter

Our Families

Currently, we have over 40 active volunteers serving the Quad Cities! This includes those in Scott, Clinton,  Muscatine & Jackson Counties in Iowa and Rock Island, Mercer, Henry & Whiteside Counties in Illinois.  All of our volunteers are evaluated and approved through background checks, home screening references, and training. 

Our Churches

The local churches play a vital role in recruiting and supporting their congregation to serve others in a crisis situation. Each church has differing congregation sizes and they vary from denominational to non-denominational backgrounds. They all play an active role. Our volunteers are followers of Jesus and desire to do their part in reaching out to struggling families in their communities.

Our Team

Our wonderful group of volunteers make the Safe Families for Children movement possible in the Quad City area.  They are supported by a staff of professionals dedicated to assisting the volunteers and helping families in crisis get back on their feet. Our staff devotes their time towards engaging churches, building the volunteer base, transitioning children, meeting with local agencies, providing volunteer trainings,  supporting placing parents, and so much more.
