At Lilly’s Fostering Hearts, we believe that everyone deserves a loving, nurturing home. We are actively working in the community to create a global network of organizations that share the same goal as we do: bringing together those in a position of need, those in a position to help, and those who share the dream of forever families and a nurturing world for them to live in.
Join our hero organizations and BE A LIGHTHOUSE FOR A CHILD IN NEED. Our campaign supports and collaborates with other non-profit organizations that benefit displaced youth and those waiting for adoption or living in foster care.
Together we can create more awareness as to the challenges facing our youth!
Thank you to our Heart Hero organizations:
Heart Gallery of Los Angeles – a traveling gallery of photographs of waiting children who want to be part of a permanent loving family. There are wonderful children of all ages and ethnicities in Los Angeles County who cannot safely live with their birth families. Many have been moved many times from home to home without ever having that one family to call their own. Currently, the Los Angeles County Department of Children and Family Services (DCFS) is looking for adoptive families for nearly 600 children who want to be part of a permanent loving family. Heart Gallery LA helps these deserving children find families by teaming up with volunteer professional photographers to create a traveling gallery of photographs of waiting children, which capture the true beauty and spirit of these children for prospective adoptive parents.
Dave Thomas Foundation for Adoption – a national nonprofit public charity dedicated to dramatically increasing the adoptions of the more than 110,000 children waiting in North America’s foster care systems.
At the Dave Thomas Foundation for Adoption, we believe that we have a responsibility to be the voice of foster care adoption, so that every child finds a family. We exist to find homes for children who are waiting to be adopted from foster care in North America. In the process, we work to inform adults who may have misperceptions about foster care adoption that keep them from getting involved. Through the money we raise, we are able to provide free educational resources, promote awareness, assist policymakers and employers, and support adoption professionals and agencies throughout the United States and Canada to ensure that every child finds a forever home.

Today, Mustard Seed Ranch reaches kids through its current program locations in Orange, Riverside and San Diego counties, and continues to expand in order to reach the growing need for this program.
First Place For Youth – working to end homelessness and poverty among former foster youth.
The mission of First Place for Youth is to help foster youth build the skills they need to make a successful transition to self-sufficiency and responsible adulthood.
First Place for Youth is an innovative and entrepreneurial nonprofit organization whose programs proactively challenge the trends among former foster youth by building self-esteem, self reliance, and forging the skills necessary for successful independent living. Our programs are considered to be a national model for supporting youth in their transition out of foster care, and focus on housing stability, educational support, economic security, improved health, and connection to community. With these critical resources, youth are significantly more likely to overcome homelessness, poverty, low educational achievement, and poor health.
