We've been working on something exciting!
After years of popular demand, we are thrilled to announce that our coverage area is now expanding to include Bastrop County. And it kicks off TODAY as we extend our services to come alongside more children and families experiencing foster care in Central Texas.
We're launching this satellite location with a focus on our EQUIP pillar - getting tangible items into caregivers' hands, so they can care for the children they're welcoming into their homes.
Leading the charge in Bastrop is Mackenzie Elliff who has volunteered her professional expertise and personal experience to bring the Foster Village mission to her neighbors in Bastrop where she has seen the need first-hand.
Mackenzie felt called to be a foster parent at the early age of 19. She made her dream a reality when she and her husband, Lane, became licensed foster parents in 2021. When they opened their home to their first placement and received welcome packs from Foster Village, Mackenzie fell in love with our mission. She's excited to help equip other families with essential items and connect them with support from this village.
Stay tuned for updates on how you can be involved in this exciting expansion!
