Poverty and Foster Care – Project Prevention

October 26, 2009

children-jumpProject Prevention is a ministry of the Dream Center in Los Angeles, California.  It was established  with the mission to help families that may be at risk of losing their children due to poverty.

The Problem:  There are approximately 500,000 children in foster care right now.  An estimated 20,000  of those children are in the Los Angeles county.  Research shows that between 50% -70% of the children in Foster care  have parents who love them but have lost them due to poverty.  There are approximately 30,000,000 people living in poverty in America and with today’s economic challenges, that number will grow. 

Part of the Solution:  Project prevention works together with Social Services and directly with the families to provide the help that is needed to keep the family together and set them on a solid path for the future.  Some of the services provided through Project Prevention include; food, furniture, cleaning, parenting classes, GED classes, anger management and most importantly, encouragement.

If you are in the Los Angeles County area, your family needs help, you know someone who needs help or would like to help this cause; please contact Project Prevention at Kbradley@dreamcenter.org or call (213) 273-7123.

If you would like to get more information on how to start this kind of program in your area; please email or call using the same information listed above.

Be a part of the solution for the growing problem of Poverty and Foster Care in America.  Enjoy Life by enriching someone else’s.
