People Reaching Others for Life
The purpose of People Reaching Others for Life is to build life-affirming relationships by connecting individuals through their unique experiences of family life.
In an effort to improve community health, integrate social interactions within our community, foster empathic connections, and uphold the dignity of all life, People Reaching Others for Life provides a supportive network for people who experience the joys and struggles of family life.

Help People Reaching Others for Life bring Safe Families to Sauk County!
Safe Families for Children (SFFC) Wisconsin is an organization that connects parents to a network of support through family-like relationships with vetted volunteers. Volunteers are fully vetted and trained to provide support and resources to parents while they get back on their feet. What makes SFFC so unique is there are many roles in our Circle of Support so everyone can do something!
