The emotions of overhearing him casually and securely refer to you as ‘My Mom and Dad’ to a friend, long before he does to your face. And when he does finally let it slip to you, to watch the shy smile of hope come over his face, knowing he is accepted and okay here.

Currently, there are more than 100,000 children in California’s foster care system who need to be placed in safe and secure homes while receiving the care and nurturing they currently do not experience in their home environments. For over 20 years, Childhelp’s Foster Family and Adoption Programs of California have connected loving families with children by actively recruiting, certifying and training foster/adoptive families in Southern California. From its offices in Hollywood and Redlands, critical services can be offered and provided to children most in need. Foster care and adoption services Childhelp offers include S.A.F.E. adoption home studies and preparing families for adoptive placement.
“Home is not where you live, but where they understand you.”
Each foster/adoptive child welcomed into Childhelp’s Foster Family and Adoption Agency has access to a well-qualified clinical coordinator who provides weekly case management and individual or family counseling. Crisis intervention services are also provided throughout a child’s stay with a foster family. A child’s medical, dental, developmental, and educational needs are monitored on a regular basis. Once a child is placed in a home, Childhelp is committed to providing assistance and community-based program referrals to the entire family.
What will the Childhelp Foster Family Agency Provide?
While some foster parents are open to the idea of adopting or pursuing legal guardianship of the children in their care, all families know and understand that Childhelp is committed to supporting the reunification of children with their guardians. Childhelp reinforces positive parenting techniques, and collaborative communication across family systems to ensure the best possible care for every child. Foster families benefit from respite services and events supported by Childhelp and the local community.
