Fiesta! FIT Family Fun in Laredo


Laredo’s Upbring Foster In Texas staff provided a fun celebration last weekend for 70 foster children and 29 families at their 2nd Annual Foster Family Fiesta. The Laredo Fiesta provided special family time and was jointly hosted by Upbring, Foster Angels of South Texas, Catholic Social Services, Burke Center and Voz de Niños (CASA).

While the children enjoyed a ton of activities including a bounce house, face and nail painting, music, games, raffle items, rides and rock climbing – foster parents took the opportunity to learn about resources available from Laredo’s FIT staff which included Oscar Guerra, area director, and foster social workers Fabiola Erhard, Dora Solis and Guadalupe Martinez.

Thanks to the Lamar Bruni Vergara Foundation, who made this fun fiesta possible, all the children had a blast earning prizes and playing with their peers and siblings. Have a look!
