FOSTER ALL

DIRECTOR OF OPERATIONS

ABOUT FOSTER ALL   

FosterAll began with the simple yet powerful idea of one voice, one church, and one family helping one child. Since its inception, this model has been replicated over 3,600 times, creating countless families. Founded in 1985 by Dr. Mary Rotzien, FosterAll emerged from her internship at the MacLaren Children’s Center, a now-closed residential facility in Los Angeles County. Deeply moved by the number of children in foster care without homes, Dr. Rotzien envisioned faith communities stepping in to provide families for these children. With support from Westwood Presbyterian Church and her husband Brian F. Buchanan, she established FosterAll, originally known as Child S.H.A.R.E.

Today, Dr. Rotzien’s vision endures through FosterAll’s comprehensive approach. The organization supports foster and adoptive parents by providing essential resources, training, and guidance to ensure they can offer stable and nurturing homes. By partnering with over 350 faith communities, FosterAll recruits and supports families within these communities to become foster or adoptive parents, leveraging the collective power and compassion of faith-based organizations to address the foster care crisis. FosterAll, in partnership with the Department of Mental Health, also provides a parent coaching program for foster/adopt parents with Dr. Kate Messina and trained therapeutic coaches. The program, coupled with neurofeedback therapy, is giving parents and children relief from traumatic behaviors yielding positive results for all. Additionally, FosterAll operates Hilaroo Camp, which offers a unique camp experience for foster children and rescued animals, fostering empathy, confidence, and a sense of connection through therapeutic interactions. Through these initiatives, FosterAll continues to find safe, supportive, and loving homes for children in need, upholding Dr. Rotzien’s enduring vision.
