The Wonder Mentoring Program (Wonder) serves children in foster care (ages 6-12) in the Sacramento region who are wards of the state. These children are underprivileged, lag behind in school and have suffered the negative effects of having lived in chaotic, often violent, family and community environments. Wonder matches the children with adult mentors for a period of one year, allowing them to share adventures in music, arts, sports, volunteer service, dining out and nature. It's an important intervention program for youth in foster care as they are vulnerable to academic failure and involvement in serious at-risk behaviors.

Who We Are
Sierra Forever Families is a private, nonprofit agency that facilitates the development of forever families by making the best possible connections between children and families. We know that adoption is a very personal and emotional process for all involved, and our goal is to equip children and parents for success.
We aren’t focused on creating the most families; we’re focused on creating the most stable and caring families.
Sierra Forever Families believes every child deserves to grow up in an unconditionally committed home. While some children might need temporary care, no child should grow up in temporary care and all children deserve and need a forever family to call their own.
As part of our work to equip children and parents for success, we focus on educating families about the foster-adoption process and setting realistic expectations. Please use our website as a resource as you navigate the journey, and take advantage of the training and resources we offer along the way.
