Founded in 2003, Safe Families for Children surrounds families in crisis with a caring, compassionate community. They are a volunteer-driven non-profit that provides hope and support to families in our local communities.


Safe Families for Children is a nationwide organization that supports:

25,000 volunteers, 100 chapters across the country, and 35,000 hostings. They have a 93% success rate of kids returning home.

Safe Families for Children serves a large number of individuals and families in crisis. Therefore, it is important for them to have a mobile content management system to ensure they are streamlining their communication between families, volunteers, and staff.

The Approach

Since their team of volunteers and caseworkers are constantly meeting with families, volunteers, and coaches, they needed a way to be mobile with their case notes and updates. We created an app that would serve as a mobile hub with various functions across the processing pipeline. The goal was to streamline communication between everyone involved in Safe Families for Children.

Safe Families
The Solution

Our team developed native apps for iOS and Android. The app focuses on the most critical components of casework and family coaching. The team worked directly with the Safe Families Information Technology team, the CMS team, case workers, and volunteers to develop an app that fits everyone’s needs while driving high adoption rates.

In the first 30 days, they had 83% adoption (download and repeat opens) to those who were told about the app. Now Safe Families has an app that helps them serve their communities and coach families in crisis.
