Antelope Valley Child, Youth & Family Services (AVCYFS) believes that children gain a sense of self respect by exposing and experiencing through guidance, motivation, reasoning, truth, and pride, which fosters knowledge and understanding of themselves and the world around them.
Foster care is intended to provide a temporary living arrangement for children who have been removed from, or voluntarily placed outside of, their biological family. This usually is because of abuse or neglect, or because the parents, for some other reason, cannot provide adequate care.
Most of our adoptive parents choose to do foster to adopt. In homes that chose to do foster to adopt, we accept only cases which are legal risk (meaning the parental rights are scheduled to be terminated) or the case details indicate a good chance of parental rights being terminated and no relatives have been located. There is a risk involved in this approach but we have had good success with this approach, thus far.
