Children’s Bureau Offering Online Foster Care Orientation
Urgent need for Foster & Foster-Adoptive Families to Help Children in Foster Care

Palmdale, CA Children’s Bureau is now offering an online foster-adoption orientation for individuals and/or couples who are interested helping children in foster care while reunifying with birth families or to provide legal permanency by adoption.

The current health crisis has accelerated the need for foster and foster-adoptive parents to help local at-risk youth stay in their communities. In Los Angeles County alone, the foster care population exceeds 21,000 children with 200 of those foster children waiting for an adoptive family. Many of these children are siblings in need of families who are willing and able to keep them together. In fact, Children’s Bureau turns away at least 10 sibling sets weekly due to lack of families. Older children are also in need of families.

Corridor Improvements for SR 138 (SR-14)
The City of Lancaster has secured more than $120 million dollars from the Los Angeles County Metropolitan Transportation Authority (Metro) to receive SR-138 (SR-14) Measure R Highway “Equity” Funds to improve and enhance the Avenue M, L, K, J and G interchanges.

Since this Measure R funding is enough to improve five of the City’s seven interchanges, the City has been provided a unique opportunity to redesign each one according to a unified theme that will give visitors, commuters, and residents a sense of arrival when they drive through Lancaster.

The purpose of these projects is to improve operational capacity at the interchanges and surrounding local streets, eliminating congestion, improving mobility between the freeway and local streets.
