Bikes provide independence to youth


Lasrra Parks is 19 years old and is gaining work experience at a legal office. But there is a dilemma, although she is trying to move forward in her career path, unreliable transportation is standing in her way. The obvious solution seems to be to get a vehicle but with limited finances, there is no hope of that. Thankfully her career navigator at CFLC, Amy P. noticed this problem; soon after CFLC purchased a bike to donate to her.

The bike provides her with safety and reliability to work, school, and around the community. CFLC helps youth who are facing critical life challenges such as those who are low-income, high school drop-outs, and any other unique situation that has left them vulnera...

Helping Foster Children Feel Loved during Valentine's Day


As we all know Valentine's is the day we show our appreciation and love to our friends, family, or significant other. Do you remember the excitement waiting for a Valentine's card? Sadly, not everyone is able to experience this since they are forgotten during this time of year.

The Assistant Principal, from Calvary Murrieta Christian School encouraged their students to handcraft Valentine's Day letters for foster kids, all of CFLC's girls in the youth homes, and SafeCare families.

Calvary kids created more than 70 cards. Each is unique with bible verses reminding the recipient that they are special & loved.

This is a great way to bring the community together. Thank you Calvary!

CFLC Under Construction


As our nonprofit grows every year, our need for more room is a must. Our Resource Family Agency location is in need of an updated office to fit the needs of our employees and the families we serve. Thankfully our Youthbuild youth came to the rescue to use their construction skills to remodel the space. Construction teacher, Tim Garcia, is guiding youths to build a visitation room, Resource Family Agency office, and walls to provide privacy between employees and families. Youth are not only getting hands-on experience but are also getting paid as they learn. Youthbuild is a program for young adults ages 16-24 who want to earn an education, job training, certifications in Logistics or Constru...
