On Tuesday, the Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors declared the month of May “Foster Care Awareness Month” in support of the more than 30,000 children who are currently served by the County’s Department of Children and Family Services (DCFS).

In an effort to help connect loving families with current foster children for temporary or long-term placements or adoption, DCFS is highlighting the work of several community organizations that are honoring current foster parents and working to recruit new foster parents.

Below is a selection of events taking place across Los Angeles County for National Foster Care Awareness Month. To learn more about becoming a foster parent through DCFS, visit www.fosterlakids.com, call 888-811-1121 or email FosterLAKids@dcfs.lacounty.gov.
