850 N 1st St.
Abilene, TX 79601

Abilene area! Foster 325 is thrilled to be hosting an Agency Fair for interested families to get to know YOU! We are finding that one of the barriers for families to take their next step in fostering is feeling overwhelmed with the idea of calling and ‘interviewing’ all the agencies and we want to break down any barrier that they have!

Agencies included are: Arrow, A World For Children, Children’s Hope, Christian Homes, Harmony, Methodist Children’s Home, New Horizons, Pathways, Texas Family Institute

There will not be a presentation time, it will just be a casual, come-and-go time for families to meet you. It is a family-friendly event with simple activities for kids and light refreshments.
