Meet our founder

Jason Warner, is the Founder and Executive Director of "S.A.F.E. (Safe, Affirming, Family Environment). After coming out at the age of 22 Jason found himself homeless. Over the years Jason held a vision to begin a non-profit that would help prevent other young people from experiencing homelessness.

Jason is part of the duo "Jason & deMarco". Over the years and through his travels, Jason has shared about the numbers of foster children in the system and the need to place these children in safe and affirming foster homes while preparing those aging out of foster care for independent living.
