Vista Maria will never stop — because every young person deserves to start.
We believe deeply in the power of families, and sometimes those safe homes and supportive people are found with compassionate foster and adoptive families. So that all children will know they are worthy of love and healing, Vista Maria helps young people and families find each other.
Just last year, we served 227 foster families including 25 new homes licensed to welcome children as they recover from trauma and neglect. We’ve also celebrated 29 adoptions – children and parents committing to a lifetime of love and support.
Even with each successful match, there are many other children waiting for their chance to feel safe, cared for, and inspired. In 2022 we need 50 new foster families to step forward and welcome a child into their home. You might be that person to change a young person’s life.
Vista Maria offers a continuum of assistance with fostering that may lead to adoption services. There are many ways for you to help us to bring hope and security to children, from helping to raise awareness or donating time or resources, to opening your heart and home to a foster child. Vista Maria is here to work together with you each day as we bring strength and love enough for everyone, so that one day they can do the same for others.
