Penny Lane’s Foster Family Agency provides professional training and support for adults wanting to care for children and youth in foster care. The Foster Family program at Penny Lane Centers works to find safe loving families for children and youth, while offering both the child and the resource parent a wide array of social, therapeutic and supportive services. Children and youth in foster care range from birth to 21 years of age and are referred to Penny Lane by the Department of Child and Family Services (DCFS). When it has been determined that a child or youth cannot be with his/her birth family, Penny Lane collaborates with DCFS to establish a long-term plan.
If you would like more information about becoming a resource parent, we invite you to attend one of our monthly orientations where many of your questions will be answered. Please feel free to contact at us at the appropriate location via email or phone. We have offices in the City of Commerce, North Hollywood and in the Antelope Valley in Lancaster.
Penny Lane resource parents are loving, dedicated, responsible individuals and families who open their hearts and their homes to children, teens and non-minor dependents. Penny Lane celebrates diversity and welcomes all adults regardless of race, age, marital status, ethnic background, gender identity, gender expression or sexual orientation. Resource parents are reimbursed a monthly tax free stipend for children they care for in their homes to help to defray some of the financial burden of those costs.
