Foster families open their homes to children in crisis, kids who have experienced neglect, abuse or abandonment, often due to addiction. These selfless resource parents offer love, support and hope to that child until they can return home safely.

Eleanor Gonzales shares her family's journey, from struggle and separation to reunification and now thriving, and how Janet Booth stepped up to support them in their time of need. They join our Laura Cavanaugh to talk about the critical role foster parents play in strengthening and healing families.

Right now there are more than 2,100 children in San Diego in need of your help. If you have a strong desire to make a positive difference in the life of a child, open your home and open your heart. To learn more about becoming a resource parent, call 1-877-792-KIDS or log on to
