Providing an opportunity for every person
to help children heal, learn and thrive.

Summer Partnership Appreciation

Support System

In order to meet the goals within our mission, we require support in many forms throughout the year. Whether it be a short term volunteer opportunity, or a long term campaign, the team at CFA ensures the success of meeting our goals by reaching out to individuals, companies, and like-minded organizations for this support. Having been met with an overwhelming amount of support for our recent Back-to-School Drive, we decided to show our appreciation by inviting our supporters and volunteers for a coffee meet and greet with our CEO, John Neiuber on September 5 and 8 at Children’s Foundation of America headquarters in the Claremont Village.

Above: Development Specialist, Jenelle Rensch, donated sweets for our guests. Local volunteers and supporters enjoyed donuts and coffee with the team at CFA. 

Supporters and volunteers had an opportunity to discuss upcoming volunteer opportunities and fundraisers, as well have an in depth discussion with our team about how their support has helped children in foster care, residential treatment, and shelters throughout Southern California. Each supporter was then awarded with a certificate of appreciation for their recent efforts.

A Special Thank You

Keeping our goals on track also requires long term dedication from committed volunteer leaders and partnerships. We wanted to give a special thank you to our volunteer leader, Jessica Quintana, before we bid her farewell to her new job in the Bay Area. CEO John Neiuber presented Jessica with a certificate for her dedicated work to children in need.

We also wanted to give a very special thank you to our Americorps VIP Fellow, Sasha Chavez, for ensuring the success of our volunteer program and fundraising efforts throughout the summer. Our staff took Sasha out to lunch and gifted her with a mini pie adorned with a pastry CFA star.

Gratitude

We are so grateful to those who support us in fulfilling our mission to “provide an opportunity for every person to help children heal, learn and thrive.” Though we are sad to see some of our volunteers move on, we are so proud of the accomplishments they have achieved and wish them well as they continue to “be the difference” wherever they go!

Volunteer Spotlight: Jessica Quintana

Jessica Quintana has volunteered regularly with The Children’s Foundation of America over the span of a few months. She has helped with several events thus far,  including  blanket making and cards for kids. Jessica says that these types of events hold a special place in her heart because she loves to help foster youth feel loved and special. We interviewed Jessica to talk about her motivations and hobbies, and why she loves volunteering with us.

Tell us a little about yourself

I just finished my master’s program at Azusa Pacific in college counseling and student development. I love community service and volunteering and  thought “ While I have this time off I should volunteer”. So that’s really how I got plugged in with this organization.

What are your hobbies outside of volunteering?

I like crafting a lot. I like reading in my spare time, and I love to dance.

Do you volunteer with any other organizations?

I have in the past. Right now I’m trying to get started with Priceless Pet Rescue, which is another local nonprofit focused on animal rescues.

What inspired you to become involved with the Children’s Foundation of America?

I saw the blanket making event on VolunteerMatch.org and thought “Wow, that is so amazing”. [It’s amazing] for foster kids to have something from this type of organization. And to be able to help them feel special by giving them something personal that someone spent time on (because it does take time)! It was cool to just be a part of that. That’s what really got me interested in continuing to volunteer.

Can you describe your favorite CFA volunteer event.

Like I said, I  love the blanket making event. It gives all the volunteers an opportunity to sit by each other and chat it up while we’re making these blankets. I’d say that’s the most fun and most rewarding, but there a lot of other things. Like the card’s for kids event was really great. Those kind of events just really touch my heart.

Why would you encourage others to volunteer with us?

I personally think that while donating money is really important for organizations to survive, donating your time and experience is something that (for me at least) is way more meaningful. I think the Children’s Foundation of America does a really good job at communicating their values and goals for each volunteer event. That’s why I like to encourage others to volunteer with CFA.

Is there anything else you’d like to share with your fellow volunteers?

I like that we have the opportunity to meet often for CFA volunteer events. And it’s been a real pleasure seeing some familiar volunteer faces and my overall experience has just been great. I’m really glad to be part of this group.

Jessica is a volunteer leader for the Children’s Foundation of America. Volunteer leaders assist with at least 2 volunteer events a month, go through our volunteer management training, and work closely with volunteers and staff at the Children’s Foundation of America.

Back to School Supply Drive a Major Success


The Hillman Group celebrates the completion of stuffing over 100 back packs with school supplies to be donated to local children in foster care.

Back to school for many children can mean a time of excitement and anticipation. What is often forgotten is that displaced children often feel anxiety and uncertainty when it comes to preparing for this important time. In fact, many children transitioning into foster homes usually need everything from a back packs to basic school supplies as they often have no possessions to call their own. Understanding this need, the team at Children’s Foundation of America launched the annual Back-to-School Supply Drive in June with the goal in mind to supply 150 back packs filled with school supplies to school aged children in need living throughout Southern California.

The Overwhelming Support

What we couldn’t have predicted was the overwhelming amount of support and generosity from our volunteers, business partners, and community members to reach our goal. Over the course of two months, we received over 200 back packs, hundreds of school supplies valued at $1700, and over 10 volunteers from The Hillman Group dedicating a combined 20 hours to assembling back to school care packages!

Children’s Foundation of America partnered with the Claremont Village Marketing Group to provide school supplies for the Shoes That Fit drive.

Enough Supplies to Spread the Love

Receiving a surplus of school supplies allowed us to extend our assistance not only children in foster care supported by Trinity Youth Services, but also a number of displaced or disadvantaged children supported by Foothill Family Shelter, David and Margaret Youth and Family Services, and Shoes That Fit.


Volunteer Coordinator, Sasha Chavez, drops off backpacks for children at Foothill Family Shelter.

We’d like to thank all of our local partners for making the Back-to-School Supply Drive a major success:

The Hillman Group

Advantage Resourcing

Claremont Little Free Library

Tapestry Church

Claremont United Church of Christ

Christina Jackson, Board Member

Laura Chaidez, Board Member

Volunteer Spotlight: Ashley Guzman

Ashley has volunteered with The Children’s Foundation of America for multiple events including tabling opportunities, blanket making for foster children, and community awareness campaigns. She is currently attending Citrus College majoring in sociology and feels closely aligned with our mission of helping children heal, learn and thrive. She is hoping to continue her volunteer work and one day pursue a career in social work or become a counselor. We sat down with Ashley to hear more about her hobbies and what keeps her inspired to be involved in the community.

What are your hobbies outside of volunteering?

My hobbies consist of playing with my dogs, taking them on walks, hanging out with friends, reading and playing on my ukulele.

Do you volunteer with any other organizations?

Yes, I volunteer with House of Ruth who directly helps men and women who suffer from domestic violence. And Together We Rise, another nonprofit organization that supports foster youth.

What inspired you to become involved with the Children’s Foundation of America?

Since I want to pursue a career in social work, I want to focus my path on helping children in foster care. Volunteering with the Children’s Foundation of America is a great way for me to do that and to give back to the community. I also hope to create my own nonprofit organization when I get older.

Can you describe your favorite CFA Volunteer Event?

My favorite event was the 4th of July tabling event. A lot of people were there and they were very interactive and very interested in knowing more about the Children’s Foundation of America.

 Why would you encourage others to volunteer?

Organizations that are focused on foster care youth need our support and love. Volunteering is a great way to give back to your community. Some of these children suffer from mental health issues so volunteering is a great way to raise awareness about these issues and the needs of these children.

Any advice you’d like to share with your fellow volunteers?

Be confident, be brave and be enthusiastic. When volunteering, be yourself.  Don’t be afraid to ask questions and don’t be afraid to respond to questions.

For more information on volunteering with our organization, please email volunteer@trinityys.org.

Board Member Spotlight: Christina Jackson

My name is Christina Jackson and I live in Long Beach, CA with my husband, 4-year-old son and two dogs. My professional background is in graphic design, but I have developed a passion for interior design and I hope to work in that field once my son goes to school full time. I love books (I’m an avid reader, book hoarder and book club attender), fine art and dance parties in the kitchen with my son. I’m also a cancer survivor! The fact that I got a second chance at life heightened my commitment to helping others, especially kids.

I first discovered the Children’s Foundation of America (CFA) by accident! For years, my mom and I had been making Christmas stockings and Easter baskets for kids at various local shelters and similar organizations. It was a great experience, but also very anonymous. I wanted to channel my efforts toward a more specific demographic, specifically foster kids, and I wanted to work with an organization that I could become personally involved with. I Googled local foster care organizations and Trinity Youth Services popped up on my screen, so I contacted them to offer my services. That year, my mom and I created 32 Christmas gift bags for the kids at Trinity’s Long Beach office. My involvement quickly grew into Easter baskets, back to school items and birthday gifts. Pretty soon after that, Becky and the fabulous people at CFA (which supports Trinity Youth Services) asked me to become a member of the board of trustees.

The thing I love most about CFA is their long-term commitment to help kids heal from the traumatic effects of abuse, neglect or abandonment. They are in it with these kids for the long haul, whether it be residential programs, foster care support or community-based programs. I specifically love the fact that we offer scholarships to teens aging out of foster care in order to support their studies and growth into healthy, productive adults.

My personal aspiration is to help increase funding for the arts-based therapies and outings that the kids experience. Art and creativity in all its forms is healing, cathartic and joyful. It has the power to liberate the spirit. And oftentimes, great art finds its inspiration in great pain. If anyone deserves exposure to the arts, it’s these kids. Who knows what seeds of inspiration might take root in their hearts? It’s my hope that the children supported by CFA will be able to experience hands-on art based therapy, plus outings to theater and dance productions, live music, museums, culinary classes, etc!

So far, my favorite experience happened while I was attending last year’s Christmas party for Trinity’s Long Beach foster kids. I made friends with two little boys who were in the process of being adopted by a lovely couple sitting at my table. The boys were brothers and they were adorable. The two of them ran off to the cookie decorating table and returned with some cookies especially for me. They were piled so high with heaps of gooey frosting and candy, you could barely tell there was a cookie underneath! Needless to say I ate every last bite of those cookies as my new friends proudly watched!


Christina Jackson, Board Member
In 2016, Christina became a board member of the Children’s Foundation of America as a result of her involvement with partner organization, Trinity Youth Services. Christina is an adoptive mom and a cancer survivor. Getting a second chance at life only encouraged her more to help others. Christina helps the Foundation with organizing toy donations, doing graphic design, finding deserving scholarship applicants, assisting with events and much more.

 


 

Volunteer Spotlight: Sophia Amado

This month’s Volunteer Spotlight focus on Sophia Amado, who lives in Rancho Cucamonga. She recently helped the Children’s Foundation of America (CFA) by making blankets for foster youth.

What are your favorite hobbies?

I like to go hiking, I like to go to festivals, concerts, and just hanging out with my friends.

Where did you go to school?

I went to school at Studio 7 in Covina and I majored in fashion merchandising.

What activities do you participate in with CFA?

Blanket making for foster children, passing out fliers during awareness campaigns and helping to organize the warehouse

What inspired you to volunteer?

I really like the organization and the work that they do. I also like the fact that it deals with children, which is our future.

What do you find most rewarding about volunteering?

What’s most rewarding is that it’s for a good cause, that it gives me a sense of fulfillment and it just helps our community. It’s good to help your community and to get outside of yourself sometimes. The best way to do that is by doing something that you feel passion for.

Anything else you’d like to share with fellow volunteers?

Keep on volunteering. It’s such great and fulfilling work that we do here and I’m sure they appreciate it.

Volunteer Spotlight: Delilah DeBillis

What are your hobbies outside of volunteering?

My hobbies include going hiking and spending time with my family and friends. I also love Pinterest, so I do a lot of arts and crafts. I also love to eat, and I after eat, I love to sleep and take naps anytime that I can.

What activities do you participate in with the Children’s Foundation of America?

I’ve mostly done awareness activities that include assembling the flyers and going out to the community. We then pass them out and spread awareness about the children and options on how people can help.

What inspired you to volunteer with the Children’s Foundation of America?

I found this opportunity on volunteermatch.org and when I read the mission statement about helping children it just really hit home, because I believe that children are our future and if we can make an impact on just one child, it can make a huge difference. That child that you made an impact on, maybe they can impact another person and another person, and eventually, you might have hundreds of lives that are changed for the better.

What do you find most rewarding about volunteering with the Children’s Foundation of America?

I think it’s very rewarding helping a child who may be in need and just letting them know that they are important and significant.

What is your favorite memory from volunteering with the Children’s Foundation of America?

My favorite memory from volunteering is during child abuse awareness month. It was such a great feeling to be spreading awareness for a great cause. While we were passing out the flyers this woman accepted our flyer and was really happy and commented on how awesome it was that we were doing this. It made me happy because it was good to know that we impacted at least one person.

Why would you encourage others to volunteer?

I would encourage others to volunteer because it allows you to really understand the community that you live in. I think it’s really great to understand other people; where they come from and how they think and what you can do to support that. We are all living on this earth together, so we might as well celebrate it, enjoy each other and help each other out to make the best of what we have here. It’s also just amazing when you can make an impact or just make someone smile for a day. Whether that’s by just saying hi or passing out fliers, or doing arts and crafts with a child or educating a parent about something like foster care, I think that’s beautiful within itself. So definitely volunteer, even if it’s just for an hour. It makes all the difference.

Anything else you’d like to share with your fellow volunteers?

Children are our future and they also seem to be the most vulnerable due to their age and dependency on others. Because of this, I think it’s vital to always communicate and look at the well-being of the child as a whole. If I can provide a smile, confidence, comfort, financial or even housing stability, then that can make a world of a difference in a child’s future and even their mindset! Children’s Foundation of America allows me to make that impact and I look forward to volunteering more because of this.

Blankets for Foster Kids

During Foster Care Awareness Month we made it a priority to do as much as we can to provide extra comfort to youth in foster care. With the help of our intern Sasha Chavez, we were able to gather 11 volunteers to participate in two-day blanket making event! The first day was hosted at Claremont Manor, a retirement community located less than a mile from our office, and the second day was located at CFA headquarters. This event allowed like-minded volunteers to interact with CFA staff and to learn more about the mission of the Foundation, as well as create something unique and comforting for the children in need.

After four hours of hard work, volunteers were able to complete 15 blankets which will be donated to children transitioning into foster care in Los Angeles County. What a great success!

National Foster Care Month

National Foster Care Month is observed in the United States during the month of May every year. It began with President Ronald Reagan in 1988. Over 400,000 children each year in the US are not able to live with their families as the result of the trauma of abuse and neglect. 112,000 of these children are waiting to be adopted into a forever family.

What We Do

The Children’s Foundation of America identifies and accesses resources to support foster care, adoption, residential treatment, mental health and community-based programs of the highest quality, so that children in need or who have been the victims of trauma, abuse, neglect or abandonment may lead, healthy, productive lives.

Volunteer Spotlight: Sasha Chavez

For this month’s Volunteer Spotlight, we would like to introduce you to our AmeriCorps V.I.P. (Volunteer Infrastructure Program) Intern, Sasha Chavez. This mutually beneficial partnership allows Sasha to work hand in hand with the Children’s Foundation of America (CFA) to develop and expand the quality of the volunteer opportunities to address the unmet needs of our local community. Sasha has been a wonderful asset to our team. She creates content for our social media, assists with our community outreach and has even helped by coordinating a fundraiser.

Sasha lives near our headquarters in Claremont and studies public relations and marketing at the University of La Verne. When she isn’t volunteering with CFA, she enjoys reading, being outdoors and spending time with my friends and family.

How did you first get involved with CFA?

I got involved with CFA a couple months ago while I was searching for an internship on the ULV career portal. I came across CFA’s communications intern listing and decided to apply.

What has surprised you most about working with CFA?

Everyone is so supportive of each other and I believe that really helps to push the mission of CFA forward.

How did it make you feel to be part of organizing a CFA fundraiser?

This past Tuesday we had a fundraiser at Pizza N Such in Claremont. It felt really great to be surrounded by people who want to give to a good cause. The energy in the room was so uplifting.

What do you wish other people knew about CFA?

I wish they knew that even a small effort goes a long way. Something as small as writing a birthday card for a child or volunteering in any capacity does so much.

What would you tell someone who is thinking about getting involved?

I would encourage them to do it. It feels great to see how much of a difference you can make.

How would someone describe you?

I would hope that I would be described as smart, helpful and kind.

All of us at the Children’s Foundation of America would agree with that description. Our team is truly grateful to work with such amazing volunteers and to have the opportunity to partner with AmeriCorps. To volunteer at the Children’s Foundation of America, call 1-800-KIDS-730 or email volunteer@trinityys.org.

Volunteer Spotlight: Tamera Guarnieri

This month’s volunteer spotlight focuses on Tamera Guarnieri, who lives in Upland and recently helped out at our booth for the Claremont Pie Festival!

What are your favorite pastimes?

My favorite pastimes are tinkering in my garden, reading, listening to most genres of music, dancing and watching sports. I enjoy playing card and board games. Lately I have been addicted to Magic Puzzles on my tablet. Family dinners on the patio, a glass of wine with a girlfriend, or walking on the beach are my mental refreshers.

Where did you go to school and what was your major?

After high school I attended Mt. San Antonio to begin a degree in fashion merchandising. The road in life is not always straight and so through the zig and zags I took several classes at Chaffey College in various disciplines. It was not until my 40’s when I took some computer classes at California Computer School that I found the road less bumpy.

What activities do you participate in with Children’s Foundation of America?

I have headed the Holiday Heroes program at my company for six years. Our employees really enjoy purchasing gifts for the kids. As the box gets fuller and fuller everyone “ooh’s” and “aah’s” while remembering their own holiday gifts as children. I believe the holiday spirit is best felt when giving joy to children.

Recently I stepped outside of this once-a-year program and volunteered to man the booth at the Claremont Pie Festival. What a great day I had! It was fun to see the faces of attendees as they won a prize by spinning the prize wheel. Talking to passers-by about the Children’s Foundation of America and the wonderful work they do was rewarding. Informing others about this important foundation will hopefully spur them on to volunteer themselves or donate to a great cause.

What inspired you to volunteer with Children’s Foundation of America?

As the mother of three, a former school volunteer and Girl Scout leader I have a special place in my heart for children. It grieves me that kids and teens are put into circumstances beyond their control and that these situations have such impact on their futures. It is wonderful to know that there are loving, giving people ready to help with this plight and find solutions that have the children’s best interest at heart. I want to be part of this solution.

What do you find most rewarding about volunteering with Children’s Foundation of America?

The smiles on the children’s faces at the holiday party would be reward enough. Knowing I am helping the Foundation carry on its mission is a close second.

What’s your favorite memory from volunteering with Children’s Foundation of America?

One year this teen asked for boxers and socks on his holiday gift request. All the other children had asked for an Xbox or bike or Barbie doll, but he had only asked for essential items. I took his card and fulfilled his wish along with jeans, and shirts, and other items. I hope he liked everything because I really wanted to do right by this guy.

Why would you encourage others to volunteer?

We have so much in our lives. Even if you feel you have a little it is probably more than a lot of others have. If you have time to watch a TV show you have an hour to volunteer. Can you make some phone calls? Fold a few flyers? If you are going to a festival anyway why not spend an hour or two working the booth before or after. It makes you feel good to do something for others. It shows your children how to care for people outside of their family and friends. This community of life comes together when we support each other. Get outside of your comfort zone and volunteer!

Is there anything else you would like to share with your fellow volunteers?

Look around, surf the net, check at church, see what volunteer opportunities best suit your abilities. If you love children and working with others as I do then the Children’s Foundation of America might just be the thing you’re missing in your life.
