I need you to make your voice heard for tremendous program here in Maine. Safe Families is a faith-based alternative to foster care presently operating here in our state. Christian families are vetted and trained in order to take children into their homes in times of greatest need. LD 1065 offers legal protection to parents and children who take advantage of Safe Families. The bill ensures that the parent’s request for help cannot be used as evidence of neglect in a custody hearing. LD 1065 also makes sure children are not abandoned to Safe Family placements. Pro-life Mainers are committed to the well-being of children before and after birth. I urge you to go to our website and select the Citizen Action Alert so you can tell your State Representative and State Senator to vote yes on LD 1065.
