DCFS Must Keep Its Promises to LGBTQ+ Youth!

The Department of Children and Family Services has failed LGBTQ+ youth by denying them life-saving services.

At least 20-30% of foster youth identify as LGBTQ+ and over 90% of those young people are also youth of color.

Even though there is a huge over representation of LGBTQ+ youth in LA County’s child welfare system, there is zero investment in programs and services specifically for LGBTQ+ foster youth.

We demand that DCFS request the $3.8 million to fund the program they promised the state, the community, and the LGBTQ+ foster youth in their care.

It’s time for the DCFS Director, Bobby Cagle, and the Board of Supervisors to stop making the same mistakes and provide the life-saving services that LGBTQ+ youth need to be healthy, equal, and complete.
