Since 1999, Sankofa Safe Child Initiative opened its doors to reduce the numbers of families involved in the child welfare and/or juvenile justice systems. We provide supportive services to help preserve, stabilize, reunify, and keep families intact by meeting families where they are, help them look back to identify their strengths and move forward to self-sustainability. Their mission is to provide supportive services, referrals, resources & skills that encourages underserved families and communities to be strong, self-sufficient and remain intact.
