Welcome Foster Youth

You deserve to be heard, and we are here to listen. So, whether you need assistance with school, employment, living independently or you are looking for more resources, DCFS is here to point you toward the information you need.

If you are having a problem, it is important that you tell someone so people can help you.

If you can’t find what you’re looking for or need further assistance, talk to your social worker, attorney, or a foster parent if you can. You can also call the DCFS Youth Ombudsman office at 877-694-5741.

LA County DCFS has three goals in mind for you: Safety, Well-Being and Permanency.
