Who’s Serving Our Foster Care Organization

Finally Family Homes is a Santa Clarita based foster care organization serving youth aging out and run by a talented team from a variety of backgrounds, skills, and gifts. We all share a passion to invest in and care for foster youth thrust into the world without the security of a home or family.

We believe genuine, healthy connection is the key to our success and theirs. Though they might not have a family of blood, they have a family with us, and the additional support of the many other foster care organizations in Los Angeles that we partner with.

As a nonprofit foster care organization specializing in serving those who are aging out, we have a diverse team serving the interests of our young adults on our board of directors. Our board also ensures that we honor the investment of our supporters who have chosen to give to Finally Family Homes as their foster care organization to donate to.
