Angels Foster Care is a non-profit organization that rescues abused, neglected and abandoned babies and places them in loving Angels foster homes in Santa Barbara County. The agency was established in 2006 to offer excellent foster homes and stabilize babies, meeting the growing demand for licensed foster homes in Santa Barbara County. The agency works with children aged two and under (and their siblings up to age five) who are entering foster care for the first time. In six years, Angels Foster Care has placed 118 babies in local homes.
Numerous studies speak to the importance of infant attachment, which occurs when a child bonds to a consistent set of caregivers during his or her first 24 months of life. Angels foster parents take only one child (or sibling group) at a time, must have a stay-at-home parent and agree to keep the child until reunification with the birth parents or adoption occurs. A twelve-month commitment is usual, which allows the child to receive stable care and prevents movement within the foster care system. Due to critical shortages, there is an urgent need for certified foster homes. Information is available at www.angelssb.com or by calling (805) 884-0012.
