“LOVE HAS NO LIMITS” CAMPAIGN

All Saints Church Foster Care Project is joining our partnering agency, Fosterall, and a network of 1,000 other faith communities throughout Southern California, to address the acute and growing need to recruit foster and adoptive families for our most vulnerable children:, children languishing in the foster care system. Love Has No Limits (LHNL) is a collaborative, multi-county recruitment campaign that will continue through the end of May 2021.

There are more than 40,000 children in foster care in Southern California. Los Angeles County alone has more children in foster care than any other county or entire state in the country. Outcome statistics for these children are horrifying, with significant numbers likely to become homeless, incarcerated, human trafficked, and prone to trauma the rest of their lives. To view a short video on the importance of protecting all our children, follow this link:

Faith communities can be the solution to this crisis.
