Bringing foster children home
On any given day, more than 100,000 children in California live away from their families in foster care. One-fourth of these youngsters live right here in Los Angeles County – more than any other region.
Many of these children were separated from loving parents who could not afford the basic necessities such as food, diapers, and beds.
Our Foster Care Intervention program provides food, clothing, diapers, cleaning supplies, appliances and furniture to assure that homes with minor children meet the requirements of Los Angeles County’s Department of Children and Family Services. In some cases, the simple addition of a bed or safe crib is all a home needs to welcome back their child.
In addition to direct assistance, the we give parents a place for their scheduled supervised visitation. As a support ministry, we work to train volunteers who wish to give their time as visitation monitors. Often, supervised visitation is part of the process of reuniting children with their parents.
