Helping Foster Youth in Los Angeles County
Cops 4 Causes in partnership with LA County Department of Children and Family Services (DCFS), Foster Family Agencies and regional partners provides opportunities for 1st Responders (Police, Firefighters, Active Duty Military and Veterans) to serve as chaperones for youth in temporary protective placement, or in group homes that are approved to participate in the program (“HERO” program). The focus of our program is to provide life-enriching experiences and to find loving homes for foster youth. We hope to encourage fostering and adoption by creating bonds between 1st Responders and foster youth.
The Cops 4 Causes Golden Ticket program provides bi-monthly opportunities for foster youth, their foster/adoptive families and/or 1st Responder members to attend live theater productions and workshops from Los Angeles’ world-class theaters, sports teams and LA based educational institutions. These experiences are made possible by the generous donations of our partner theaters and sponsors.
