Radio Host Critical of Catholic Charities: Call for foster Families For Immigrant Adults

As North Texas awaits the arrival of more than 2,000 immigrant children from South and Central America, leaders from Catholic Charities of Fort Worth and Catholic Charities of Dallas said the needs are great.  Along with monetary donations and gift cards from Walmart and Target, Heather Reynolds, CEO of Catholic Charities of Fort Worth, said they are most in need of foster families.   “We need foster families who can provide a safe, nurturing culturally sensitive home that will equip and empower these children to reach their fullest potential,” she said.  Right now Catholic Charities of Fort Worth has about 40 foster families, Reynolds said, but they hope to double that number.

Fostering takes extensive training and a long term commitment.
