News & Notes

Today, the need for foster/resource families is even greater than it has been in the past.There are nearly 450,000 children in foster care in the United States and the numbers continue to grow. It is easy to assume this problem doesn’t affect us, but it does. There are children in need in our own community. Los Angeles County is home to 30,000 of the 50,000 children in foster care in California.

For most children in foster care (430,000 and counting), the primary goal is reunification. But in the unfortunate circumstance when reunification is no longer a viable option, a child becomes available for adoption and will need a permanent home and family.

  • During his 14 years in the foster system Luis lived with four different families and a handful of residential homes. Acclimating to his new life was difficult to say the least. In elementary school Luis frequently acted out, a natural behavior for children who have experienced trauma.
