Posted: Updated:

Adopt a Child: A child is waiting...find out how you can provide a loving forever home for a child in San Diego's Foster Care system. Visit www.iadoptu.org, today or call 1-877-I-ADOPT-U.

Give to the CAPF Foster Fund: Each year hundreds of children leave foster care with no financial support to pursue higher education. Invest in the future of a former foster youth by supporting CAPF's scholarship program today. Visit our scholarship page online or call 858-278-4400.

Become a Mentor: Thousands of children in foster care need and deserve a loving role model to help them succeed and to reach their goals. You can be that role model by becoming a mentor for a child under the age of 18. Call 858-616-5930.

Become a Special Advocate (CASA): You can be the voice for children in the foster care system by becoming a court appointed special advocate. For more information, contact Voices for Children at 858-569-2019, or by visiting www.voices4children.org.
