YOU CAN MAKE A DIFFERENCE
Resource Parents are community members who step up and foster care when a home is no longer safe for a child or teen. The California Department of Social Services is currently sponsoring a campaign to find individuals and families who are willing to care for children and teens, who were removed from their homes. Many of the young people have been cared for in an intensive service therapeutic facility.
Many teens in foster care have experienced some challenges. Some have faced abuse or neglect and some may have mental, behavioral or physical challenges that have made it harder to find the perfect home. California believes in the promise of our young people and invests heavily in providing them and those who step up to care for them the resources needed to succeed.
Each young person comes with an army of support. Caregivers are supported by specialists, experts, therapists and more to help them handle any challenges that may arise. Our goal is helping the young people find the support, stability, and permanency required to thrive as adults.
