About SAFE

SAFE IS A RESOURCE TO: Foster parents, foster youth, neglected and abused youth, families in need, the Department of Children Services (DCS) and other local agencies and organizations serving at-risk youth and families.

VISION: SAFE's primary mission includes 1) educating the community on the desperate need of foster parents and foster homes in Middle Tennessee 2) connecting those individuals or couples interested in fostering with the Department of Child Services to learn more and hopefully begin their journey of certification 3) providing a physical space and location as a resource for foster families, agencies, organizations and other state resources to use to support their families, clients and programs 4) providing resources to foster youth aging out of the system, educating them on their options and benefits, and most importantly helping them prepare for independent living through life skill training.

As of May of 2015, according to AdoptUsKids.org, there are 8,146 children in foster care and 320 children available for adoption in the state of Tennessee. These children entered foster care through no fault of their own, as victims of child abuse, neglect or abandonment. The parental rights of those available for adoption have been terminated.
