SAN ANGELO, Texas – Fostering Concho Valley Kids is a group of child placing agencies that work together to recruit, train, and support foster families. Currently, there is an urgent need for foster homes in the Concho Valley.
Rebeka Samples and Yvonne Velasquez say that they’ve lost several foster homes during the last year and a half due to the pandemic and aftermath of the pandemic.
The group is also hosting their annual Foster Care Fair on October 2, 2021 at the Bosque along the Concho River. This is a free and family-friendly event open to the community. There is no obligation to sign up for anything. The goal is to connect with the community and offer fun activities as well as information about the services offered in the Concho Valley. If you are a vendor that is looking to get involved, contact Rebeka or Yvonne through the Fostering Concho Valley Kids Facebook page.
