Did you know that L.A. County has the largest population of foster children in the United States?
Friends LA works with multiple communities to identify and work alongside children and parents utilizing our two-generation approach to achieve the greatest impact for the child and for the parent(s) that we serve.
We meet parents and families where they're at on The Well-Being Continuum.
We support family empowerment to prevent child entry into foster care.
Parents partner with us to build protections around their child(ren) and family.
When placement in foster care is unavoidable, Friends continue to support the child and their family.
When children in our program experience foster care, we work with the entire adult support system to reduce the need for social systems.
Friends LA uniquely serves parenting foster youth.
