Help At-Risk Kids Stay in Their Communities

In Los Angeles County alone, the foster care population exceeds 21,000 children with 500 of those foster children waiting for an adoptive family. Many of these children are siblings in need of resource families who are willing and able to keep them together. In fact, Children’s Bureau turns away at least 10 sibling sets weekly due to lack of families.

Help local at-risk kids stay in their communities and with their siblings by becoming a resource parent. Read below to learn more foster care and foster-adoption and how to get started.
