Meet the Wichita Falls Management Team
Samantha Taggart – Area Director
When beginning her journey into adulthood, Samantha Taggart joined the military, searching for career choices. While in the military, she realized how blessed she was with my family growing up and decided she wanted to be a social worker to help others that were not as lucky as she was to have a loving family. Sam completed her degree once she got out of the military and started her adventures in the social work field. Foster care is not a job to Sam, it is her passion. Sam believes in what she does and hopes that she can find help for children and families as they reunify or help parents when they are adopting.
