Foster Care and Adoption
In Los Angeles County, approximately 20,000 children and youth are in foster care at any given time, making this the largest foster care system in the country. Most children enter the system as a result of neglect (43%), abuse (32%), or otherwise at risk (23%). Each month, DCFS receives approximately 13,000 referrals for evaluation. More resource families are needed to provide safe, secure, stable homes.
For youth who have spent years in foster care or who are “aging out” without having secured a safe and permanent home, the risks are substantial. Our Unlimited Possibilities for Youth (UP4Youth) Program helps these youth forge their futures through education planning, employment services, resource coordination, and connecting them with mentors to help support them on their path to becoming self-sufficient adults.
