A network of support for relative caregivers who are assuming responsibility for children that will never go home to their parents.
The SBCC Approach
Unlike traditional approaches to caregiving that focus on providing basic necessities such as furniture, diapers, school supplies, and food, SBCC adopts a more holistic and family-centered approach. In recognizing the vital role that relative caregivers play in safeguarding the well-being of the children under their care, we deeply honor this role by investing in strengthening family bonds and creating a nurturing, supportive environment that enriches the lives of both children and caregivers alike.
The Work We Do
SBCC’s Kinship Care Venture provides support to caregivers who are relatives of children detained by the County of Los Angeles Department of Children and Family Services (DCFS) for reasons of child safety. Through this Venture, SBCC offers a variety of resources for growth, care, and development so that these children can build new, healthy relationships and create a new network of support. SBCC uses a humanistic approach that focuses on participants' strengths, resiliency, and assets to empower each person to improve their lives.
