Children Embracing in Circle

Mission Statement: 

Coachella Valley Foster Kids is a non-profit organization created to change the trajectory of a foster youth’s life growing up in the system. We do this by providing educational tools and resources, support services for necessities, and inspirational experiences.

Who we are:

In 2019, the juvenile dependency attorneys in Indio formed Coachella Valley Foster Kids as direct service providers to families dealing with current court cases. Those attorneys represent, on average, 1200 to 1500 youths in the foster system. These kids, from newborns on, have either been permanently removed from their parents or are in the process of reunifying with their parents and are temporarily placed in foster homes. The founders observed that these children had a variety of needs that were not being met due to existing gaps and set out to fill them.

What we provide:

Coachella Valley Foster Kids offers a range of services and resources to help children in the foster system. These include a backpack drive to support back-to-school needs, holiday giving to ensure that no child goes without, a foster closet, beds for children so they can have a safe night's sleep as well as camp and other experiences that are often overlooked. Additionally, support is offered to these children's caregivers through a Resource Family Support Group. Our ultimate goal is to establish a facility where our children and families can find all the support they need in one place.
