Dear Members and Friends,

It is with great sadness that I pass along the news that our long time friend and supporter Samuel Artino, Sr. has passed away. He was a faithful supporter of FOFC in the Scholarship Committee and a HUGE supporter of Sugar Plum. It was just last year at the Fall Luncheon that we honored Sam’s contributions with a certificate of appreciation.

The family has asked that in lieu of flowers, donations can be made to FOFC in Sam’s memory.

He will be greatly missed.



We at Friends of Foster Children San Gabriel wanted to share this wonderful opportunity with our members in hopes we can help bolster support for the ALL SAINTS CHURCH FOSTER CARE PROJECTs.  If interested you can click on the link below to find further information and to SIGN UP.

Welcome to Friends of Foster Children (FOFC)! We have been serving foster children in the San Gabriel Valley since 1976. We are always looking for new members to join us and help make a foster child's life a little brighter.

FOFC is an all-volunteer 501(c)(3) organization. We have no paid staff and no facility, so less than 6% of our annual budget is spent on operating costs. A total of 94% of every donated dollar is applied to the children's needs.

Various fundraisers and gift collections throughout the year are designed to help foster children in residential treatment centers in the San Gabriel Valley. We also assist newly emancipated foster teens as they learn to set up their own homes, continue their education, and begin their journey of being self-supporting.
