Child Placement • Foster Care Services • Adoption Services • Foster Parent Support & Training
We strive to provide the foster children in our care with opportunities that will assist in creating positive childhood memories. One way we accomplish this goal is by hosting a fun and family oriented event each summer. Most often, the event is held prior to the beginning of the new school year. The event differs from year to year; however, the agency wide event has taken place at venues such as Fiesta Texas, Sea World, Aquatica, and Wolfe Stadium.
FE understands and appreciates the sacrifices made by not only our foster parents, but also the biological children of our families. Each agency wide event is inclusive of our foster children, foster parents, caregivers, and the biological children (ages 0-17) of our foster families.
The holidays are a particularly difficult time for foster children to be separated from their biological families. Providing these children with a special party and gifts allow them an opportunity to experience positive memories related to the holiday season and their time in substitute care.
It is wonderful to see happy, excited, and enthusiastic children opening their Christmas gifts, sharing a special meal, and enjoying the festivities of the season.
We are truly thankful to our generous sponsors who provide monetary donations, toys, and/or gift cards to our children each Christmas.
