For these next few weeks we want to highlight some of our foster parents. Our foster parents are amazing individuals from the community who decide to open their hearts and homes to care for our children who have experienced abuse and neglect.

We’d like to introduce you to one our wonderful parents, Mr. & Mrs. Coronado. They were licensed in 2019 and opened their home to young teens. They have cared for both girls and boys and have been learning how to help teens work through their trauma. We are blessed to have them in our world!
Please send them some love and prayers for continued strength and courage in helping our children. πŸ™πŸΌπŸ’•

β€œSer padre provisional, Primero Dios, la satisfacciΓ³n de la sonris de caso niΓ±o. Cada dΓ­a ir aprendiendo juntos con ellos enseΓ±Γ‘ndoles lo mejor, respeto, lealtad. Y sabemos que no todo es fΓ‘cil pero con amor y paciencia todo se logra. Y por supuesto con la ayuda de la directora y trabajadores de AWFC.”——Familia Coronado

Due to the increased degree of isolation because of COVID-19, it has created an increased risk of child abuse and neglect for already stressed families.

Please take a look at some great tips from the Hidalgo County District Attorney’s Office on how you can help.

We are currently looking for sponsors or donations for our back to school drive for our children. Our children have been through so much coming into care and then Covid-19, on only added to their trauma.
We now want to celebrate their return to school and help them focus on their learning journey, which is different too this year. So if anyone is interested in donating any items please reach out to us. We are planning a drive by celebration at our office and plan to give away food and supplies for our foster families. Please contact our office at (956) 683-9917 or message us for information or questions. Thank you in advance and stay safe!!πŸ™πŸΌπŸ’•

Hello friends, This is Jonathon Vasquez, the Executive Director of Operations for the South Texas Literacy Coalition. We would like to invite to our Free Virtual Conference, the South Texas Literacy Symposium. Registration will be available Monday morning. Follow our event at: https://fb.me/e/1aYxqVrHV
Thank you Neri & staff from Dr. Batta's pediatric clinic for your gift donations for our upcoming annual Christmas party for our children!!πŸ˜ŠπŸŽπŸŽ„
iam looking for any good samaritan join us we are edcating 60 children same of their parents are totaly poor and orthers lost them , and weden are looking for orthers.
Summer is here and fun is on the way.... Tomorrow (June 24th) 1700 of our AWFC family will converge on Fiesta Texas for a day of smiles, giggles and happy children. All 1700 of us will be sporting our purple AWFC t-shirts which is wonderful because we see our family "everywhere". At noon we all gather in the picnic grove for lunch and games. Seeing "our World" in mass is quite exciting. It gives our children in foster care a better understanding of "I am not the only one making this foster care journey." Watching our children for one day forget the trauma that brought them into foster care is beyond measure. So often the children exclaim - this is the best day of my whole life. Music to our ears! Every year this gets more and more expensive as AWFC pays for hotel rooms, gas money from destinations across the state, and tickets - lunch - parking - souvenirs - t-shirts for 1700+. But watching our kids enjoy this experience is worth whatever the cost. Not only do they have a fabulous memory - they have something to share on the first day of school regarding their summer adventures (remember writing or sharing your story in class). To those who donate to AWFC, thank you!!!!!!!!. Every penny of donations goes to our children. To those who are considering donating - please know these donations help us make possible our many events for our youngsters. Pictures coming!
