We are a non-profit and it is our mission to ensure that every child has the opportunity to be part of a safe, nurturing & lifelong family. Since opening our doors in 1980 we have helped over 9,000 children in foster care find their forever families in the state of California. In the past year we have completed 760 adoptions for California foster children. The majority of these children were in Northern California; we completed nearly a quarter of all foster adoptions for the 48 Northern California counties. Most are in Sacramento, San Joaquin and Contra Costa counties.
