Kelli and her husband have fostered children in Los Angeles for a decade. She has become a vocal foster youth advocate. Kelli became a nonprofit entrepreneur when founding Tori’s Torch, a foundation set up to educate, empower, and encourage caregivers to be a voice for children in the juvenile court system. Kelli has become a powerful liaison between county agencies, foster parent support groups, and statewide child advocacy organizations with the purpose of improving communication across all sectors and to encourage child centered decision-making.
Kelli Sedgewick is Advokids' Los Angeles Liaison. Advokids is a remarkable resource for child advocates, particularly foster parents, as it provides them the legal and scientific principles to effectively advocate for the well-being of children.

Pizza and a Young Life ‘Hangout’ will be provided for teens.
This is a FREE event for families providing care for children through Strong Families, foster care, adoption, guardianship, and kinship placements.
