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 nonprofit 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
"I wanted to drop a quick note to thank you for the program that my daughter participated in. It was truly meaningful and made a positive impact upon her. it is obvious that Kevin is a caring individual who works hard in fulfilling the mission of your organization!
kindest regards, -Youth Diversion Parent”
“Thank you SAFS! I don’t know what we would do without all of you and your dedication and help!”
