Our Mission

All Saints Church Foster Care Project provides community education, public policy/advocacy and direct services for children and youth who have been removed from the care of their parents to the supervision of the state. The Project recruits and sustains volunteers who serve in public and private agencies or work on special projects designed to enhance the lives of foster, homeless, transitional and incarcerated children and youth.

EDUCATION

To increase public awareness of the crisis many families and youth in Los Angeles County are currently facing in foster care. We do this through activities including advocacy work as well as at events where attendees can stop by and learn more at our lawn table.

SERVICE

To improve the quality of lives of children and youth in foster care, homeless, incarcerated or under the supervision of probation through the provision of direct services to the children or to the agencies serving them.

COMMUNITY ACTION

To improve the quality of the lives of children and young people in foster care, homeless, incarcerated or under the supervision of probation through system changes.

SUPPORT THE FOSTER CARE PROJECT AT THE ALL SAINTS CHURCH ALTERNATIVE CHRISTMAS MARKET

10:00-11:00 A.M Pasadena

Please join us online on Sunday, December 13 from 10:00 – 11:00 a.m. for the All Saints Church Alternative Christmas Market. The Alternative Christmas Market has been a cherished tradition for the Foster Care Project over the years – helping to provide hundreds of gifts to foster children via the Angel Tree and raising funds to benefit our many programs through the sale of Christmas cards.

With the severe impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, we are especially in need of your financial support at this year’s Alternative Christmas Market Zoom event. Your help will enable us to provide Christmas gifts to struggling families, as well as groceries; diapers; formula and baby food for our single parent foster youths; a month’s rent to prevent homelessness; and so much more.

CURRENT OPPORTUNITIES

Our range of one-time and ongoing volunteering opportunities provide direct services to those in Foster Care. Become a volunteer by clicking the Sign Up button!

BRING LOVE AND CHEER TO OUR CHILDREN AND FAMILIES IN FOSTER CARE

It's our final push of the year. Foster Care Project's Adopt a Child Abuse Caseworker Program will be assisting our three “adopted” DCFS caseworkers to ensure that every child on their caseload receives a gift. If you would like to provide a tangible gift item, consider the suggestions below or come up with your own ideas. Note: please leave gifts unwrapped or place them in gift bags, so the caseworkers can see each item and match it to a particular child. Donation on or before December 13 is requested, so our caseworkers can make timely deliveries

Toddlers and Preschoolers: Imaginary play items, such as small play people or animals; tea sets; pretend food and kitchen items; portable dollhouses or garages; puzzles and games, such as Candyland; books; building blocks; baby dolls; big trucks; soft balls and other soft toys.

School age kids: Lego sets; books, puzzles and games, such as Yahtzee, Clue, Jenga, Uno and Apples to Apples; cars, trucks, and Hot Wheels sets; arts and crafts; and activity sets.

Teens and young adults: Puzzles and games, such as Bananagrams, Upwords and Big Boggle; commemorative sports magazines featuring Dodgers or Lakers; sketchbooks and art supplies; hair accessories; simple jewelry; journals; Starbucks gift cards and reusable coffee cups; Target gift cards so they can select something fun.
