Foster Care Counts improves the lives of youth in foster care and ensures they thrive. We partner with care and advocacy organizations to address the gaps in service and impediments to success and target ways to boost outcomes. Together, we ignite initiatives to empower foster youth, improve access to valuable resources, and incite change on their behalf.

Volunteer for Foster Care Counts’ annual Peace4Kids Magical Holiday Celebration, Saturday, December 9th from 9:00am – 2:00pm.

Help create a special day for the youth served by Peace4Kids and the Watts-Willowbrook Boys & Girls Club. Volunteers will help transform the Watts-Willowbrook Boys & Girls Club into a winter wonderland the week leading up to the event. And, on the day of the event, volunteers help with arts & crafts, carnival games, ginger bread houses, and so much more! We hope you will join us!

Foster Care Counts is excited to announce the launch of ‘The Emporium’, a free “storefront” in mid-city Los Angeles that offers a range of new and donated goods – from hygiene products to clothing to laptops – for foster youth and families. In collaboration with The Book Foundation, Hope in a Suitcase, and iFoster, Foster Care Counts is bringing its ‘Goods for Grades’ program to the Community.

To schedule an appointment or learn more about The Emporium please call 323.746.5800 or email info@thebookfoundation.org.
