Here's a sample of our volunteer opportunities:VIEW AS
Inner Circle was organized to address the growing deficit of services to troubled children and families in our community. Every individual has the intrinsic right to have their basic needs met in a respectful, supportive manner. Families deserve every reasonable opportunity to preserve their family unit. We recognize that the family is the foundation of our community. We believe that children living in nurturing, stable environments will mature into healthy, productive members of society. Our goal is to provide community based services to children and families for the purpose of strengthening the family unit, emancipating prepared, productive young adults and providing specialized, quality foster care. By meeting these needs in a caring, comprehensive and professional manner, we will impact the quality of life for the children and families in our community.
Inner Circle is a State of California licensed non-profit corporation with offices in Van Nuys and Palmdale, Ca. We provide free training to individuals interested in becoming foster parents. Our certified homes are designed to provide treatment to children who experience behavioral, emotional and physical problems that exclude them from conventional foster homes. Each home must undergo extensive screening and training prior to the placement of children. We provide services to children ages 0 to 18. Services are provided by master Degree Social Workers. These services include: complete psychological, social, educational and physical assessments and treatment plans for each child as needed. Treatment services are augmented via specialized community support groups. Emancipation and job placement services are provided to children 16 and older. Specially trained staff is provided to work with infants and toddlers. We offer a family reunification program, aftercare services and counseling services. Training programs for staff, foster parents and the community are ongoing. We have a Developmental Disabilities program that provides support and care for families of children with cerebral palsy, epilepsy, down syndrome, autism and mental challenges. We are also a licensed adoption agency and provide home studies and assistance in the adoption process for FFA foster families and county foster homes. Inner Circle has received the highest accreditation rating from the California Association of Services for Children and are members of the Foster Family Treatment Association.
