San Diego’s children need more heroes, exceptional families able to open their hearts and their homes

That’s where resource families step up to provide stability, love and support so these kids can heal. Sponsored by County of San Diego HHSA.

Every month, hundreds of children in San Diego need a home. They’ve been left without parents due to tragedy or removed from the home, due to abuse, neglect or trauma, and they need someone they can turn to as a safe haven. That’s where resource families step up to provide stability, love and support so these kids can heal. Carrie and Dan Collins have been that support system. They join our Laura Cavanaugh to talk about their 13-year foster journey, how they mentor birth parents and work to help children learn to love life again by exposing them to outdoor activities and new experiences.

If you have a strong desire to make a positive difference in the life of a child and help them prepare for a brighter future, open your home and open your heart. To learn more about becoming a resource parent, call 1-877-792-KIDS or log on to sandiegofosterkids.com.
