Least Of These

Goals/Projected Harvest

  • Raise awareness regarding the need for foster and forever families in Summit County, while partnering with organizations that offer preventative solutions to help decrease the number of kids going into the foster care system.

  • Establish Faith Community collaborations that foster and support those working to assist families whose children are the most at risk of experiencing displacement.

  • Listening to young adults and discussing what is happening in the city of Akron and empowering them to help reduce the violence.

Safe Families

Safe Families for Children is a community-driven nonprofit organization that works to prevent child abuse and decrease the number of children being forcibly separated from their parents through foster care.

They addresses the needs of underserved children and their parents who are on the edge of crisis and at risk of foster care involvement. We seek to support parents where there may be risk of neglect because the parent does not have the support needed to meet their own needs as well as the needs of their children. 

Summit County Children Services

Together we can provide Summit County families with the support they need to create stronger, safer, and happier homes. Currently there are more than 800 children who are in need of a foster family, but only about 155 foster homes.

The Locker Room

Working with coaches and staff in Akron Public Schools to create a safe and uplifting environment for all students in the High Schools within Akron.
