Having called California home for decades, Bale was deeply moved upon learning about the staggering number of foster children in the area, particularly the heartbreaking reality of siblings being separated within the system. Determined to make a difference, he embarked on a journey that led him to Chicago, where he immersed himself in meetings with children and family services.
Inspired by the resilience and potential for positive change, Bale enlisted the expertise of Tim McCormick, a seasoned advocate who shared his vision. Together, alongside UCLA doctor Eric Esrailian, they founded Together California—a beacon of hope and support for vulnerable youth.
