- SafeCare Provider
A variety of systems and agencies have implemented SafeCare to serve caregivers with different needs. Systems include county and state public health departments, child welfare systems (including family preservation, reunification, foster parents, and family drug courts), early intervention systems (home visiting programs, Head Start programs, programs serving parents with intellectual disabilities), and criminal justice systems serving parents released from jail. SafeCare can be implemented with virtually any caregiver who can benefit from bolstering the skills taught.
In the United States, there are currently 90+ fully accredited SafeCare agencies, which include more than 900 SafeCare Providers. According to data supplied for annual accreditation, SafeCare Providers complete an average of 131,214 home visits each year with approximately 7,500 families receiving SafeCare services each year. These numbers are an underestimate of our reach as they do not account for the families served by our recently trained SafeCare sites or the SafeCare sites located abroad.
