As a Registered Nurse, Janiese Finney grew weary of observing the continuous cycle that resulted from the lack of consistent care that is faced by foster children in Los Angeles, California. Children often remained in the hospital for extended periods after receiving care -waiting to be placed in homes that were unable to attend to their sensitive physical, social, and mental health needs. Those that were placed often returned to the hospital in need of repeat care. The children’s lack of continuity of care stunted their progress. Furthermore, the constant instability had a greater impact on their ability to transition into stable environments impacting all aspects of their development.
In response, Loving Hands Children’s Home was launched: an innovative, collaborative approach to our mission: to promote dignity and the highest esteem in our clients while providing safe and compassionate care.
