Services and Programs for Foster Families
The Foster Care Auxiliary always strives to offer the most possible in ways of providing services, trainings, events, products and services to our foster families. Below are some of the offerings.
Baby Gear Lending Program
Check out our baby gear loaner program to help with your fostering needs. Any foster parent member of the Foster Care Auxiliary OR any caretaker of an Orange County court dependant child (referred by social worker) in need of equipment may check out strollers, car seats, playpens, mobiles, swings and other equipment as available.
Computers for Foster Youth
Open to members of The Foster Care Auxiliary and have a Foster youth student under 20 years of age who would like his or her own computer. Click here for details.
Our library is full of great books that are for loan to members. Check out books on subjects that range from child care, parenting advice, fiction, and many others.
Books may be checked out as you need them and should be returned at the next scheduled member distribution day or arrangements made to keep them longer.
Each year two $500 Academic Scholarships will be awarded. Click here to find out more.
