Each year, Aspiranet touches the lives of over 9,300 California children
and families - offering permanent connections and reasons to
hope. We help families at risk stay together - keeping children
out of the foster care or group care system - through
counseling, resources, case management and other much-needed
For those children in foster care, we find them safe, loving families to
live and grow until they can be reunified with their families.
Sixty-one percent of the children placed in Aspiranet foster
homes are reunified with their birth families. And for those
children who cannot reunify or remain in their families, we
offer adoption services to provide permanent families to live
and grow into the future. Twenty-four percent of children who
leave the care of Aspiranet, go on to live with permanent
families. Then we support the family with post-adoption
services. Our connections to families doesn't stop with the
finalization of their adoptions.

We provide mental health services to individuals and families in the
community as well as those in foster care or group care.
Aspiranet partners with mental health agencies across the state

visitation programs so that families can stay and learn
For some students, special education environments are needed for children
who can’t learn in a typical public school. Our two state
credentialed schools have a low student to teacher ratio so they
can build their skills and get the education they deserve. Our
after-school and community programs are built on a youth
development model to encourage self-value and community service.
These programs get youth engaged in learning, explore their
interests and apply what is presented in the classroom to
something they find interesting and fun. And with the dedication
of our volunteers, we thread intergenerational connections in
to many of our programs.
