The inaugural “Fostering Home” event will take place on Saturday, June 3, 2017, starting at 11am-4pm, at the Center of Hope Church, at 9550 Crenshaw Blvd in Inglewood. The Los Angeles County Department of Children and Family Services (DCFS), along with community and faith partners, have created “Fostering Home,” a new project designed to make the process of becoming a foster or adoptive parent easier and more inclusive for all families. In South Los Angeles, there is a critical need for foster homes for abused and neglected children. Between 2005 and 2015, Los Angeles County lost 52% of its foster homes while the number of youth involved in the child welfare system has grown to approximately 35,000. There are not enough families to meet the current needs of the over 18,000 foster youth residing in out-of-home care placements.
