Children's Bureau of Southern California Foster Care & Adoption

1910 Magnolia Avenue

Children's Bureau, established in 1904 to protect children, began providing adoption services in the 1940's in response to the increased need of finding homes for World War II refuge children and war orphans.  Today, we help 500 at-risk children in caring foster homes and finalize over 100 adoptions each year.  For over 115 years, Children's Bureau has been a nonprofit leader in the prevention and treatment of child abuse and neglect.  More than 30,000 children and families are helped each year throughout Southern California with services that include school readiness, parenting classes, family resource centers, support groups, mental health counseling, foster care, foster-adoption, independent adoptions and more.  Children's Bureau is one of the largest investors in child abuse prevention in the country and is developing a national model to transform an entire at-risk community through its Magnolia Community Initiative.
