History and Mission

In the years since our founding in 1968,,  the on-going support of  our  Concho Valley community has made possible our continued operation and enabled us to widen our range of service to offer emergency care for children of all ages and help to ex-foster kids setting out on life on their own.  We strongly believe that the future of our children is the future of our community, and our agency is dedicated to helping improve both.
