Foster Care and Adoption
SUMMARY OF THE ORGANIZATION
Extraordinary Families (EF) is a leading child welfare organization whose mission is to help children and youth in foster care to have the childhoods and futures they rightfully deserve. Since 1994, we have become a leader in foster care and adoption in Los Angeles, joining thousands of children, youth, and families. Our work consists of four primary efforts along a continuum of care: 1) secure resource (foster) parents and a home for children entering the welfare system, 2) joining children and families through adoption, 3) supporting young adults with trauma and child welfare system histories as they transition to adulthood and 4) advocacy and public policy. We take tremendous pride in our model to reduce childhood trauma, encourages safety and stability, and empowers children and youth to thrive. Join us and make a difference in the lives of children and youth in foster care!
