The Lives We Impact

Greetings from Sylvania Area Family Services! This year SAFS is celebrating 50 years of service to our community.

SAFS is Sylvania’s largest non-profit which operates without a consistent, sustainable source of funding, which is why ongoing sponsorships and events become so important to our organization.

In turn, the SAFS strategy is to innovate, create, and collaborate to leverage additional community resources to both maximize and be good stewards of donor dollars. Investing locally is a sure way you can make a difference in Sylvania.

“Families need a resource to turn to when faced with difficult times”.

-Sylvania City Mayor Craig Stough

“Thank you SAFS! I don’t know what we would do without all of you and your dedication and help!”


Provide Hope
Giving families and individuals an opportunity to create and maintain a better quality of life.

Using partnerships with other area agencies and organizations to assist our community.

Following fiscal stewardship, ethical, and practical guidelines of the agency.
