To ensure the highest quality of support to foster parents and children and youth, Knotts Family Agency’s services are delivered through three distinct organizational units:
Foster Family Agency and the Adoptions Agency:
We provide a variety of services for children and youth in “out-of-home” care. Knotts Family Agency maintains many programs including foster care and adoption, family preservation and reunification, adoption support and other post- adoption services.
Family and Community Resource Center:
Parents have access to community-based programs, including mentoring, tutoring, youth leadership development, family strengthening, financial literacy, and culturally-competent strategies to support resilience and self-sufficiency and the prevention of mental health issues.
Family Nurturing Center – Parenting Institute:
In 2011, Knotts Family Agency established the Family Nurturing Center of Southern California, which serves as trainer and consultant for the Nurturing Parenting program, an evidence-based parenting education program. The Family Nurturing Center also trains other organizations, families, and individuals as it relates to implementing programs to strengthen families, including improving parenting skills.
