BRYAN, Texas – With the ongoing West Texas child custody case, many people are asking what they can do to help children in foster care. The Department of Family and Protective Services (DFPS) is joining with its partners in the Brazos Valley this weekend to provide information about what average Texans can to help the victims of child abuse and neglect.
DFPS, along with private foster care agencies and non-profit child welfare groups, is hosting “A Day in the Park” at the Brazos Center to provide information about becoming a foster parent and recognize the work of those who care for abuse and neglect victims. Current foster parents will be on hand to share their experiences and talk about the rewards of the work they do, and Child Protective Services workers will be there to talk about the process of becoming a foster parent as well other ways to help child victims.
