Who Cares:
A National Count of Foster Homes and Families

Faith and Foster Care in L.A.

The number of L.A. County foster care homes has dropped by 32 percent in the last decade. But the number of kids in the system needing those homes has gone up. That's according to the Department of Children and Family Services. In response to this discrepancy, DCFS and other county officials have a plan to tap the faith community in L.A. for help. That's the topic of a town hall-style event in Inglewood tonight. The event is hosted by The Chronicle of Social Change – a news site focused on vulnerable youth and families.

Guest: Daniel Heimpel, publisher of The Chronicle of Social Change
