There are more than 100-thousand children in the foster care system in the United States, and 30-thousand age out of the foster care system every year without families. More importantly, there are about 500 children still in need of homes, here, in the Texas Panhandle.
Jorie Morrison , recruiter for Buckner Children and Family Services, says foster care can be a rewarding experience.
If you're interested, Buckner is on hand to give you resources and education about the process. Buckner hosts an information meeting the first Tuesday of each month at five-thirty.
