Partnering with Churches:

The backbone of our work primarily comes through small groups of people in local churches – do you have small groups, discipleship groups, bible studies or Sunday School classes that are interested in keeping kids safe?  We’d love to bring the conversation to you!  Email our team at

Areas of need:

  • We are currently looking to expand into the Anoka-Hennepin School District (are you a church that is in that school district or have a partnership with ISD 11?). We want to hear from you!
  • Alexandria Area – we are also expanding to serve these counties in early 2020:  Douglas, Pope, Grant, Stevens, and Traverse Counties.
  • Wright and Sherburne County – in early development and looking for several lead churches!

Safe Families Advocates:

Become a SF advocate and get exclusive touch points and conference calls with our Founder, Dave Anderson, to hear what’s happening around the nation!  We’ll also provide  Safe Families “swag” and unique events in your area to connect with others that care about the work of local faith communities and keeping kids safe.  A monthly gift of $25 will advance our specific local Minnesota initiatives to grow into the Anoka Hennepin School District and Greater MN.   Want more info?  Check out our Minnesota Advocate Page.
