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.

Your donations of any of the following items (new or gently used) are needed and would be very much appreciated: Clean, casual men’s clothing in XL sizes and up; Snack Packs including granola bars, a water bottle, cookies, and other non-perishable food; and gift cards for Target, Food 4 Less, Ralphs, and McDonalds.
