Welcome, Santa Cruz County!


Santa Cruz County is one of the Bay Area's most beautiful areas with stunning beaches and incredible redwood forests, a favorite destination for families and adventurers alike. But among the beauty lives distinct brokenness: more than 200 children in Santa Cruz County are living in the foster care system.


For more than three years, Foster The Bay has been partnering with churches and county agencies in the Bay Area to change the narrative for children in foster care, and you have made it possible.

Thanks to your generosity, more than 150 children have been welcomed into safe and loving homes in five different counties around the Bay.

Now, we hope you'll partner with us to carry the mission forward in Santa Cruz County!
