We serve children in the Los Angeles County Foster Care System by providing clothing and hygiene supplies to emergency placements. Additionally we carry a limited supply of larger items such as car seats and strollers. These items are distributed through a network of churches throughout the county. If you are in need of emergency placement supplies please click here.
At Image Coffee we choose to donate 10% of all of our profits so support We Foster LA, a wonderful ministry close to our hearts.
Here are a few details on what they do straight from their website (https://wefosterla.org):
Pregnant Foster Youth
We recognize that being a young mother in the foster care system takes courage. We come along side these mothers and their caregivers to provide them with necessary supplies through hosted or drop-off baby showers. We provide mothers with a years worth of baby clothing, tons of diapers, nursing and formula support, large equipment as needed and gifts to pamper new moms in their postpartum season. These resources are provided by social worker referral only. Youth must be actively engaged with the foster care system as a minor or as a young adult in the AB12 program. If you are a social worker requesting support for a youth in your care please click here.
Resource Parent Support
Parenting is hard. Being a resource parent is even harder. It is our desire to see parents in the Los Angeles County Foster Care system supported and encouraged as they care for children. Typically we offer quarterly resource parent gatherings throughout the year. When in-person meet-ups are not available we resource parents through online community and care package drop off. We also support parents through occasional meal delivery after receiving a new placement, after a long day in court or in a particularly trying season.
