Foster Family Agency

Masada Homes Foster Family Agency began its operation on June 1, 1992 with a vision of providing loving, sage and nurturing homes to children in crisis resulting from abandonment, abuse and neglect.

Masada Homes FFA is licensed by the State of California as a Foster Family Agency and contracts with the counties of Los Angeles, San Bernardino, Riverside, and Orange for the placement of children.

Masada Homes believes Foster Care is much more than just providing for the basic needs of children. Foster Parenting includes love, care, nurturing and commitment. Masada emphasizes partnerships with families through a philosophy of co-parenting to enrich the lives of the children in need.
