It All Started With A Dream
Founder Bill Fuser envisioned a better way to serve children in foster care & families by bridging the gap between the public & private sectors.
Our programs & initiatives provide a strong foundation for children & their families, & ensure that children who enter the foster care system are placed with lifelong families as quickly as possible.
SINCE WE OPENED OUR DOORS IN 1980, WE HAVE HELPED OVER 9,000 CHILDREN IN FOSTER CARE FIND THEIR LIFE LONG FAMILIES.
WE ARE FACING A CRISIS.
There are nearly 65,000 children in California’s foster care system. Over 16,000 of these children have been hoping to find a lifelong family for three years or more.
“THE WORLD NEEDSDREAMERS WHO DO.”
The Pillars To Our Success, our Core Values
- Partnership - Our work is too important to do alone. We collaborate with others who are committed to change, and together, we break down barriers for youth and families every day.
- Leadership -We are the flag bearers and champions for children, families, and the entire child welfare system. We never settle for the status quo. Our founder’s innovation and “industry” leadership paved the way for us to establish and maintain our leadership role. Lilliput has literally pioneered several adoption and family support services. To this day we are considered the adoption agency that CA looks to for direction. We expect the desire to be a practice leader from every employee. Standing in the Gap
- Family - We are 100% family focused. We passionately believe that every child needs and deserves a family - that a system is no place for a child to grow up.
