DALE KOOYENGA ANNOUNCES RELEASE OF SAFE FAMILIES VIDEO
BROOKFIELD, WI – Dale Kooyenga is excited to announce the release of a video
highlighting the positive impact the Safe Families program has on people’s lives. The
video features two families who found each other through Safe Families and now have a
lifelong bond as a result.
The Safe Families program is a proactive alternative to foster care. Safe Families provides
a loving sanctuary where parents can safely and voluntarily place their children in times
of need. The goal of the Safe Families program is to reunite children with their parents
in a home that is healthier and more stable, in part, because of the contribution of the
Safe Families intervention. The Safe Families program highlights the impact public policy
can have when focused on meaningful relationships.
You may find the video here.
Dale is proud to be the author of the law that enabled Safe Families to operate in
Wisconsin. The bill received tremendous bi-partisan support, and in a very partisan
environment, it was refreshing to work with colleagues on both sides of the aisle on a
bill that gives parents options to provide a better living environment for some of our
most vulnerable children.
