Overview


Mission Statement

Our Mission Statement is to enhance the lives of all Orange County Foster Children, and to help support and retain Orange County Licensed Foster Families and those providing permanent homes to minors from the Orange County Foster System.

Background Statement

Foster Care Auxiliary was formed when a group of foster parents realized that to raise healthy and successful foster children, the whole community needed to be involved, and has grown to be a resource for all Orange County foster children and their families.

Impact Statement

Serving foster families for over 25 years.
Our annual report shows that we have served an average of 70 families each month – that is 700 times that we have provided families with product from our Distribution Center…over $52,000 worth of product that we collected is now in the homes of families that care for foster children. The needed product a foster family chooses from our center for their family could mean the difference in their budget of sending their children to camp, or being able to afford a trip together, or sports equipment, or ballet lessons…or something else that the family needs.

In addition to our monthly distributions we were able to provide 208 children, newly placed in foster care with clothing, 80 children in foster families with birthday gifts, and 60 families with holiday gifts. Our Baby Gear Loaner Program, Bakery Distribution, Computers for Foster Youth Program, Mentoring Fundays, Academic Mentoring Tutor Program, and others continue to grow and help foster families.

And we had FUN! We put on a Dog Show/Costume Contest, a Foster Family Picnic, a Spring-Fest Chili Cook- Off, a Father’s Day Celebration, and a Holiday Celebration for our families, all loaded with prizes, entertainment, crafts, games, food, music, and LOVE!

From our humble beginnings in 1986, we have grown into a viable non-profit, where a substantial portion of our income is produced through our Thrift Store. The Thrift Store has grown too! First opened in 1991 two days per week, to its current location in 1998. We also learned that a substantial amount of income could be made from the product we were throwing away…over $5,000 came in from selling the product we don’t think is fit to put on our racks at the Thrift Store.

It is with your help, that we continue to fulfill our mission of enhancing the lives of Orange County foster children and help to support and retain Orange County licensed foster families and those who are providing a permanent home for a minor from the Orange County foster care system.


Needs Statement

In addition to always welcoming contributions and grants, the Foster Care Auxiliary welcomes newer model laptop computers for our Computers for Foster Youth program, and gently used baby gear for the Baby Gear Lending Program.  We need funds to help with the cost of background checks and drug testing for all of our mentors as well as funds for our monthly Mentor Funday Events to cover admission to fun places and food costs. New product of any household need is much appreciated for our Distribution Center.

CEO Statement

I am so proud to be part of this great and growing organization that serves over 200 families each month.  I have seen the Foster Care Auxiliary grow it's programs and services to include the baby gear loaner program and year round necessities to those who are accepting foster children into their homes and hearts.

CEO Comments

The Foster Care Auxiliary continues to be the only local resource of its kind for foster/adoptive and kinship families. We have programs in place for making sure each child in care has access to a computer, has a suitcase when they are moving, and has access to apply for our scholarship when they are ready for college. This and so much more are why foster families in Orange County benefit at the Foster Care Auxiliary.
