10th Annual Foster Mother’s Day

Thank you so much to everyone who helped make our 10th Annual Foster Mother’s Day such a great success! 

We hosted nearly 2,300 guests and 500 volunteers, in addition to distinguished guests from around Los Angeles, who were honored and grateful to take part in this special day.  

We truly couldn't make this event happen without the help of our amazing volunteers!

Foster Care Counts is excited to announce ‘The Emporium’, a new community resource in mid-city Los Angeles that offers a range of new and donated goods, from clothing to laptops to basic essentials –all free of charge– to transition age foster youth and families. The Emporium is a collaboration with The Book Foundation, Hope in a Suitcase, and Foster Care Counts.

We're currently looking for volunteers who are able to donate 2-3 hours each week, or each month to be part of our core volunteer team. Volunteer drop-in hours are every Wednesday and Thursday from 10am-3pm.
