The Big Picture

In California, there are 55,000 children in foster care; over 50% of those children reside in Los Angeles County. Children are placed in foster care when they are experiencing a personal or family crisis and are no longer safe at home. Foster Care is meant to be a temporary solution, but in some cases, children are adopted or remain in foster care until they become adults and “age out” of the foster care system.

Every two minutes another child enters foster care and as these numbers continue to grow, so does the need for foster families. The Foster Care and Adoption Agency at David & Margaret equips families with the knowledge, skills, training, and support needed to help youth thrive while in foster care. 

The Foster Care and Adoption Agency (FFA) at David & Margaret works in collaboration with Los Angeles, Orange, San Bernardino, and Riverside counties to place children awaiting homes with approved foster families. 

Supportive professionals of the FFA guide potential foster parents through each step of the process and provide:

  • Ongoing training required for RFA*
  • Home screening and approval 
  • Around-the-clock support
  • Child and family therapy 
  • Home visits and family support 
  • A monthly stipend (as set by DCSF)
  • Complete adoption services

*Resource Family Approval (RFA) is the new approval process unifying the requirements and training for foster parents, adoptive parents, relative care, and guardianship. The FFA follows RFA guidelines, approving families for both foster care and adoption, also known as Resource Parents, or dual-certified. 

David & Margaret also welcomes people who are going through the Independent Adoption process to make use of our Adoption Home Study, Post Placement and Post Adoption Services. We will work closely with your attorney or out of state agency to make your experience a positive one.
