PROGRAMS & SERVICES
Optimist is one of five agencies in
Los Angeles County that has been
approved to participate in the
Whole Family Foster Home
(WFFH) program.

WFFH was created specifically for pregnant and
parenting teens whose child is not a dependent of the
court.

The intent is to keep the teen parent with their child and out of the foster care system by
providing mentoring in the foster home and extra support services from the Department of
Children and Family Services and other programs throughout LA County.

To become a WFFH, the home must be certified and an initial 16-hour training, which is
offered at many local colleges, must be completed.
