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.

TAKE A SHIFT WITH THE SUGAR PLUM TREES

Our partnering agency, Friends of Foster Children, has a number of tree-sitting shifts available for their Sugar Plum Trees at the Santa Anita Westfield Mall beginning Friday, November 23, through Wednesday, December 12. Sugar Plum Trees are decorated with the Christmas wishes of more than 400 foster children from local group homes as well as from emancipating youth. During the three-hour shifts volunteers log out wish tags and receive and record incoming gifts. Sitting is easy, fun and rewarding. Volunteers are generally paired with experienced sitters. Written instructions and contact telephone numbers are provided to answer questions that might arise.
