Ark Homes Foster Family Agency is a 501 (C) (3) non-profit organization that is licensed by the state of California. We continue to strive for excellence in making a difference in the lives of children. Our foster care program provides stable, loving homes for children and teens from infancy to 18 years of age who are unable to live with their biological families. Children referred to the program are often victims of abuse and neglect and have special emotional needs. We facilitate foster care homes throughout the Riverside, San Bernardino, and Orange counties. Ark Homes Foster Family Agency accepts children of all genders, between the ages of one day old through non-minor dependents (NMD). The agency accepts children that are fost-adopt placements, high-risk infants and toddlers, children with behavior problems, and children/NMDs. Ark Homes Foster Family Agency’s goal is to provide care, supervision, and well-being of children males and females from 0 to 17 years old and Non-Minor Dependents (NMD) 18 to 21 placed with Ark Homes FFA and to provide them with the kind of ongoing therapeutic services and skills training which will meet their problems and needs. Ark Homes FFA services are individualized, culturally relevant, trauma informed and family centered. Ark Homes FFA supports children, non-minor dependents, and families from different backgrounds or experiences, including race, ethnicity, sexual orientation, gender identify, or a child or non-minor dependent who is gender non-conforming, as well as CSEC population and non-minor dependents.

a note from the executive director

"It's Amazing What We Can Achieve When We Come Together."

I would like to take this opportunity to extend my appreciation to all our foster parents throughout the years. I applaud your caring commitment and continuing support. Without the ongoing efforts of foster parents, supported by our social workers, staff and volunteers many children will end up facing life’s challenges all alone. Because of you many of these formerly abused or neglected children and teens will either safely reunite with their parents, be cared for by relatives, or be adopted by loving families. You have chosen to enlarge the purpose of your life to accept the life and well-being of children whose early life experience, health, values and norms may be quite different from your own and that of your biological children. Together, we can offer children in foster care the love and stability that are so essential for becoming responsible adults. I would also like to invite caring individuals/families, if you are able to provide a safe, stable and loving home for children and young adults, please consider becoming a foster parent. There is a vital and continuous need for people like you.
