Keeping Families Together
The DreamCenter in Los Angeles
Los Angeles County has the highest number of children in foster care with approximately 25,000. 60 percent of these children were removed from their homes and separated from loving parents whose only infraction was extreme poverty.
Since 2008, Project Prevention has reunited over 80 families and kept nearly 250 families in tact by providing the necessary items – ranging from appliances and furniture to cleaning supplies and food – to assure that homes with minor children meet the requirements of Los Angeles County Department of Children and Family Services. Most recently, The Dream Center’s Project Prevention established a visitation center at Angelus Temple’s Kidz Dream Zone so parents that are in the process of having their children returned to them can have scheduled supervised visitation. Project Prevention staff also coordinates the training of volunteers who wish to give their time as visitation monitors.
