Valerie Awtrey, a graduate from Abilene Christian University, began working as the Development Assistant for Christian Homes & Family Services in November 2014. Valerie’s passion for foster care and adoption began during her time as a volunteer at a shelter for children who had temporarily been removed from their home. She enjoyed getting to love on, care for and play with these children. Having seen the other side of it, she understands the need for good foster care and adopting families. Valerie is grateful to work for an organization which seeks to place children in caring Christian homes. Valerie is happily married to her wonderful husband, Adam.
