Learn about our Professional Parent Foster program. Children involved in the foster care system are at a far higher risk for being recruited and exploited. Our program seeks to connect our youth to safety, positive role models, and consistent/unconditional care. Professional Parents work with Santa Clara county's top 2% of at-risk youth, providing them a safe, stable, consistent environment.
- Connect with us and help host a CSEC awareness night or attend a orientation about the Professional parent program to learn about how Professional Parents open their homes to our community's most-at-risk children and teens. Come and learn about the challenges faced by youth in foster care and the factors that can put these youth at a drastically higher risk for being recruited and exploited.
- Open your home as a Professional Parent to work with our team to provide safety, connection, and engagement to an at-risk or exploited youth. Our Professional Parents unconditionally care for the youth matched to their home, whether they are at-risk or are actively being exploited. Our focus is on safety, health, resourcing, and mentoring our youth to find a way out of their exploitation.
