Victory Family Services is a family agency dedicated to supporting and improving lives of children and youth in foster care. Every child deserves Victory.
Victory Family Services is a foster family agency licensed by the State of California to assist county governments in protecting children and serving their families while they live apart because of child abuse, neglect or special family circumstances. Foster care is intended to provide temporary/short-term care for a child until a more permanent arrangement can be made. At Victory Family Services we recruit, train, approve, and offer continuous support to our resource families.A resource family consists of a parent or parents who provide short- or long-term care for children in foster care while their family receives services (referred to as reunification services). Their role is one of the most vital in the system, working tirelessly to provide these children with a better future. Most families who apply to become resource families already posses amazing qualities which will help and support the work of caring for children. Victory Family Services adds to these qualities by equipping, educating, and supporting applicant families with knowledge, life skills, and support. While there is an ongoing need for resource families in general, there is a particular need for resource parents to provide emergency care, respite care, care for sibling sets, and older youth.

Requirements to become a foster parent

Many do not realize the need for new resource families in California. The number of foster kids outnumber the foster families who can provide short or long-term care. Foster advocates work hard to find places for these children, but it is not easy.

The latest 2021 report from the Adoption and Foster Care Analysis and Reporting System (AFCARS) report in California says there are:

  • 47,871 kids in California's foster care system
  • 22,892 who entered foster care
  • 15,386 foster kids awaiting adoption
  • California foster kids across all ages, with a median of 8 years
  • 33% whose foster child case plans include adoption

A child's median time in the California foster care system is over a year at 16.8 months. 13% spend 3-4 years in foster care.

California needs foster parents to take in multiple children if they have the time and energy to care for them. Sibling groups often need care, and it is essential to support these family bonds. In California, it is challenging to find homes for teenagers, though they need stable environments and reliable adults to support them.
