Foster Care in West Texas

FOX West Texas (KIDY/KXVA)


Our region of West Texas has a significant amount of children in Foster Care and CPS care considering how "small" and "spread out" we are compared to larger cities, like Houston and their suburbs. Our area has gotten statewide attention due to this issue. Last year (and continuing this year) I've highlighted families and organizations that have either gone through the Foster Care journey themselves or, are doing everything they can to help others who are currently in that process. This includes our Rainbow Room. It's smaller and "poorer" than most in the state and relies heavily on volunteers and donations. Since the stories aired, the Rainbow Room and many other organizations have noticed and increase in awareness, community involvement, donations, interest in becoming foster parents, or the process of adoption.
