From our Resource Parents

The best thing about being a resource parents is the gratification and education we get from providing care for youth and children. They teach you a lot about yourself and the person you want to be. We get enjoyment and fulfillment, knowing that we are doing our part and contributing to making society a better place.

From our Resource Parents

The best part of being a resource parent is  knowing that we provided a safe and caring home for children
when they truly needed someone.

THRASHER FAMILY

From our Resource Parents

We became resource parents because we were blessed enough to have a home with extra room and we realized that there’s a child out there that needs a safe place to sleep even if it’s for one night.

From our Resource Parents

When we foster children, we can see them grow and thrive even if they have faced many traumas. Fostering children is not easy but it truly is a blessing to help children.

Why you should be a Foster Parent

Children need love, stability, and security

Children need a sense of belonging that only a caring and nurturing family can provide. Approximately 60,000 of Californian’s children find themselves in a situation where they are unable to live with their biological families.

Diversity and Inclusion

Valuing children’s identity enriches the way in which we live our lives, and directly impacts on the experiences and welfare of children and young people in foster care.

Meeting a Community Need

Families who provide foster care are meeting a direct, urgent need in our community by providing a safe loving home for a California child. Children do better when they are being cared for in a family setting until they are reunified with family or are adopted.

Reunification

Reunification is the goal of foster care. When you foster reunification, you’re helping to put a family back together, which is an incredible gift.

Adoption

Our social workers will guide your family through concurrent planning, foster to adopt or being matched to a foster child already looking for a forever family and home.
