Safe & Together

Our goal is to safely reunite children in foster care with their birth parents.

Our Safe & Together program works with Portland families with children ages birth to eight who are in foster care. The goal of our program is to reunite families and to prevent future occurrences of foster care placement by keeping children safely at home.

We do this by providing intensive home visiting and individualized support, and connecting families with stabilizing resources. We work in partnership with the birth parent(s), foster parent(s), DHS/Child Welfare, and mental health professionals.

Our Safe & Together Program also encourages families to participate in our parent-child playgroups and dad-specific services.

Eligibility Criteria

  • Children must be ages 0-8
  • Children must be in foster care at the time of enrollment
  • Either the birth parent(s) or foster parent(s) must live in the City of Portland
  • All referrals must come through DHS Child Welfare

Impact NW’s Safe & Together program receives funding from the Portland Children’s Levy.
