Safe Families - Volunteer Training Day

  • Christ Community Church - St. Charles 37W100 Bolcum Road Saint Charles, IL, 60175 United States (map)

Prospective Safe Families, you're invited to a live, accelerated Comprehensive Training Session. 

Offered as an alternative to online training, this event is designed to equip you to welcome a child into your home (Host Family) or support a host or placing parent (Family Friend) and move you through the training process efficiently. The live Comprehensive Training Session includes everything you need to become a certified Safe Family Volunteer—all in one place. 

Start or submit your application
Get fingerprints taken for the background check
Complete your training hours
Meet like-minded families who will support you

The training will be in two parts.  The first two hours will be for all volunteers. The second two hours will be for Host Families.  So, anyone interested in being a Family Friend only needs to stay for the first two hours.  Host Families need to stay for the whole training.

Doors open at 8:30 AM for those who need to start an application, schedule a home study, start a background check, or ask one-on-one questions.  The training session begins at 9:00 AM sharp.  Childcare will be provided. Refreshments will be served. Free Parking is available.  

Reserve your spot today! We look forward to seeing you on March 12th to equip and encourage you in your journey. If you have further questions please contact Sarah Mohr, 773-653-2222, or
