Our Story

Keith and Michelle became licensed foster parents in 2008.  They started seeing the great need for temporary placement of babies and toddlers in the foster care system and the lack of support for those caring for vulnerable children. After trying to meet this need in their home through traditional foster care, in 2014 they decided to open a separate residence to care for and treat more children at a time, this is when Bithiah’s House was born and our first residential home opened its doors. In 2019, Bithiah’s House expanded to Bithiah’s Family Services providing not only crisis housing but training, support and resources to those working with vulnerable children.  Keith and Michelle are both Educators residing in Southern California and are parents to 5 through birth and adoption.
