‘Tis the Season of Giving Back

As we reflect on the past month, we have so much to be thankful for this season. Because of your generosity, we hosted our most successful Art of Advocacy to date. We continue to be in awe of our community, which shows up year after year to support our young clients and caregivers. Your donations have helped CLC fulfill thousands of client need requests – providing school supplies, warm clothing, baby care essentials, funding for extra-curricular activities, and more. Our Adopt-A-Family program is full-swing and as usual, the outpouring of gifts is overwhelming!    

The holiday season can be difficult for children and youth in the foster care system, but with your participation, we can make the season a little bit brighter. There is still time to purchase a gift for a child in need of holiday cheer. We are accepting donations until Friday, December 10th. Learn how you can shop our wish list and more here.

Thank you for all that you do to support children and families in foster care. 

Art of Advocacy Recap

Thank you to our CLC friends for making our annual Art of Advocacy Gala a huge success! 

This year’s event, held under the stars on the UCLA Luskin Centennial Terrace, hosted more than 200 guests. Together we raised over $200,000 for children and youth in foster care. 

We are so grateful for our staff, board members, supporters and most importantly, our clients who celebrated with us earlier this month. We are thankful for our extraordinary honorees: Los Angeles County Board Supervisor Sheila Kuehl – who had a special introduction by her sister, the Honorable Jerilyn L. Borack – Assemblymember Wendy Carrillo, and Muralists DABSMYLA. Each honoree has championed and supported children in foster care through their advocacy and art. A huge thank you to Rosi Golan for lending her incredible talent and stunning voice to our evening.

November is National Native American Heritage Month

The month is a time to celebrate rich and diverse cultures, traditions, and histories and to acknowledge the significant contributions of Native people. Heritage Month is also an opportune time to educate the general public about tribes and their accomplishments and raise general awareness about the unique challenges Native people have faced historically and in the present.  

As child welfare professionals, it’s critical that we know how to apply the Indian Child Welfare Act (ICWA), recognize the events that preceded it, and appreciate the importance of culturally responsive practice with American Indian and Alaska Native children and families.
