Resource Families Needed in Contra Costa County

CONTRA COSTA COUNTY, CA (Feb. 1, 2023) — Our children and youth are our most precious resource. Unfortunately, in Contra Costa County, we have more than 500 children and youth in foster care who are dealing with the harsh reality of abuse, neglect, or lost family connections.

More resource families (also known as foster families) can be part of the solution to help fill the County’s immediate need for caregivers. Currently, our community is looking for foster parents who have the ability to understand and accommodate teens, LGBTQIA+ youth, and children with developmental and medical needs.

You have the opportunity to offer a loving home to a child or youth who may be feeling confused, alone and unloved because, by no fault of their own, they were born into difficult circumstances. If you believe you have the unique and loving skills to become a foster parent, simply attend a Resource Family Orientation.
