Foster Care


HUGS Foster Family certifies and trains loving individuals and families who wish to foster children.  We teach families the “ins” and “outs” of foster care.  Our professional social workers are available 24/7 to assist families as well as foster children in obtaining the services that they need so our families can rest assured that they will have all the support they need to make a positive impact on the child placed in their homes.  In California, there are over 60,000 children who have been displaced by circumstances out of their control and have placed into the foster-care system.  People and families who are able to provide assistance to these children are in short supply. 


Medically Fragile Foster Care

Our medical Fragile unit comprised of two full time nurses offering  24 hour coverage for our sickest clients and support for our families. We are able to offer specified training  for all the medical needs these children might present with as well as working closely with our Social Workers to make sure all needs are being met.

Group Home Program

Terra Manor, Inc started in 1997 with the opening of a small facility for female youth suffering with attachment disorders.  Currently, our facility is able to provide unique programs for female youth of all types that address underlying problems to assist them in coping in a family environment.  Our program takes into account the home and family atmosphere that is not present in many facilities and integrates needed social, rehabilitation, and education reinforcement to provide a foundation for our youth.



AB12 Program


Assembly Bill 12 was signed into law on September 30, 2010 and took effect on January 1, 2012. AB 12, and the subsequent AB 212, implement provisions of the Federal Fostering Connections to Success and Increasing Adoptions Act of 2008 (PL 110-351) to improve outcomes for youth in foster care. A provision of the Federal Fostering Connections to Success law permits states to extend title IV-E assistance to eligible child welfare or probation youth that remain in foster care up to age 21.  
Older youth who are transitioning out of foster care are in need of guidance and mentors as well.  Hugs Foster Family Agency is always looking for the special family who can provide the guidance to a young man or woman as they prepare for adulthood.
