HELPING LA'S FOSTER CARE COMMUNITY SUCCEED

Los Angeles County is home to more than 30,000 youths and children in foster care. Every day, many cope with limited access to resources, education, or supportive relationships. The Biddy Mason Charitable Foundation (BMCF) is keeping its promise to help them succeed.

Launched in 2013 as a ministry of LA’s First AME Church, today BMCF is an independent nonprofit serving current and former foster youth. We’re inspired by Biddy Mason, a formerly enslaved woman in LA who won her freedom and devoted her life to uplifting others—a legacy we’re honored to continue.

We Heal Through History

Current and former foster youth often know little about their ethnic or cultural background.

Separated from their communities of origin, many struggle with identity and maintaining positive self-worth. This is especially true for Black and Brown youths who are overrepresented in the foster care system.

BMCF believes that knowing your past can help heal your future. We intentionally weave the history of Black and underrepresented populations into our work so foster youth can reclaim their heritage and senes of belonging.

VISIT THE BIDDY MASON CHARITABLE FOUNDATION

We’re committed to educating the public on how history and support of foster youth intersect. Located in LA’s West Adams neighborhood, the BMCF house features a retrospective of Black activists, artists, inventors, chefs, and much more! Contact us today to schedule a tour and learn more about Biddy Mason and other inspiring figures from the past.
