You can support our mission by giving at 100% goes to supporting proven programs that find forever families for older kids in foster care.

You can become a champion for an older child or teen in foster care through hosting. Think of hosting as being more than a mentor. You’re helping kids find the forever family they long for and providing love, support, and encouragement to a kid who needs someone like you in their corner.

Through our Weekend Miracles program in Los Angeles, you’ll spend time (at least twice a month) with a special and resilient young person. Host families spend time getting to know a child or teen, building an organic connection, and helping them navigate life. Hosting often results in forever families through adoption, legal guardianship, and lifelong mentor relationships for kids in our program.
