Abstract Texture

Research shows that quality family time is a key indicator of earlier, and safer reunifications. Family time; especially soon after a child’s removal from the home, can be a stressful experience for both parents and children. According to our 2019 Satisfaction Survey, the main barriers preventing family reunification from actively engaging in family time, were lack of access to services and

In instances where a family may have multiple children placed in different foster homes, across counties, the strain of these barriers can begin to feel unsurmountable. SPA 6 is home to the largest population of foster youth in LA County and our agency is committed to serving all families in their SPA of origin by making the following services readily available:
