The Ventura County Foster Care Program needs more families. Nearly 1,000 children in Ventura County alone need safe, loving homes as they wait to reunite with their biological parents — but the program currently has only 470 active, approved foster homes in the county. Could your home help fill that gap? A new campaign, called Homes with Heart, is being used to reach families who may be willing to open their homes to these children. One Ojai Valley foster mom shared her experience in working with these special kids.
