Legacy Family Services

 

 

Legacy was established as a California Corporation. It is a small business & has a management that is actively involved in the day to day workings of the business. Finances aren’t managed from a distant office, & the Administrator is available for a local meeting. At Legacy Family Services we provide to our resource families the very best in foster care services & support; from the first phone conversation with us, to the placement of your first foster child in your home. We will orient, educate, support, & carry out all necessary steps to certify you as a resource parent. We also provide the premier social work services available in California. We are available to you 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, everyday, all year, including holidays. With over a decade of experience working in the foster and adoption industries in the state, you won’t find a better prepared, more knowledgeable, more committed group of social workers, educators, & administrators. Foster care refers to the system within a state that cares for minor children when it has been deemed by the court & a child protection agency that the child’s parents are unable to properly care for them.

Dear Potential Partner Parent,
Making the decision to even inquire about potentially becoming a Partner Parent is the initial first step to making a life changing decision for yourself & a child. I can assure you that your valiant action to want to become a Partner Parent will make a whirlwind of a difference for the rest of your life leaving an unforgettable legacy behind. The legacy you will leave will live on for the rest of time because of your decision to provide a loving home & stability to distressed children. These children will then grow up to learn what it is to have an ounce of hope in humanity & to be accepted & loved by someone. Igniting inspiration within them will encourage them to spread love & joy to many other children who fall into the system giving them hope to carry on & make a difference for themselves & the world. One of the sadder truths of reality is that not all children are raised to be taught the meaning of a healthy lifestyle both physically & mentally. That is when YOU come along. The moment you feel that you would like to take part in the decision to making a difference in the future of tomorrow, our children, is when you will be receiving a phone call from myself welcoming you on to an unforgettable challenging yet highly rewarding journey that will live on for generations to come. In the case of desiring a more permanent approach such as adoption, we will work together to accomplishing your goals as your goals & desires become the goals & desires of each & everyone one of us here at Legacy Family Services. Thank you & Welcome to Legacy Family Services.

Legacy has been serving children & families since 2002. We have worked with hundreds of families & even more foster children. This is important since resource families rely on that experience when they are working with children. Additionally, Legacy has a working understanding of the laws & regulations surrounding foster care. Our agency can promise you small case loads (the number of children a social worker is responsible for), interesting & enjoyable training classes, web based library, video resources, & the very latest in innovative parenting techniques—all intended to assist you as you parent your foster children & make your time with us smooth, satisfying, & easy.

To unlock the potential of families & individuals.

To develop employees that model integrity & healthy living.

To build a legacy for all of our clients.

Legacy Family Services

 

 

We believe that there is no other success that can compensate for the failure of the family unit. We believe that our ability to accomplish this lies in financial strength, excellent clinical & client services, superior employee development, & most of all, an unyielding code of ethics. Through these foundations, we are assertively pursuing opportunities to build a legacy for all children, & adults who might not otherwise have one.

The need is great. Foster care in California is currently in an urgent state. We need more qualified, kind, & willing families to undertake this important role. As the number of children that enter foster care increases every year, the number of parents willing to foster decreases. Now, more than ever, we need you. If you have the yearning to love & care for children in need, we invite you to contact us. You will change lives for the better & the children you foster will bless & inspire you for years to come!
