Mental Health Services

It is no surprise that foster children often struggle with their mental health. Due to a complicated past, these children can deal with depression, anxiety, post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), and other trauma. You care about the children under your care and would do anything to keep them from suffering. However, finding the right types of therapies and resources can be difficult. Trust us to pair you with licensed therapists and counselors that can help to resolve these issues to improve your foster child’s overall wellbeing.

Vision and Medical Assistance

If you are struggling to get access to vision and medical services, we can help. There are many options for finding affordable and accessible healthcare. Many organizations have plans to assist you in taking care of your foster children's every health need. From counseling to basic checkups, we have you covered. Our team will work with you to find a provider that meets all your needs.

Food Banks

Food banks are nonprofit organizations that collect food donations and feed families and communities in need. There are many food banks in Orange County and San Bernardino County that we can refer you to for food to feed your family.
