AWFC Amarillo office serves both homes in the Panhandle and Lubbock. AWFC has been steadily growing and becoming an important part of the community in Region 1. Our staff is vibrant and always willing to go above and beyond for their families. We develop close relationships with each family. Our team works hard be aware of how each family’s unique needs can be met in order to have our families be successful with each child they have been given the opportunity to serve. Every staff member is flexible, supportive and willing to serve. No matter the issue, we dig in our heels and get the job done. We are always on hand to help our families meet their goals and give the best possible care to our kids.

We also love to spend one-on-one time with kids, helping with appointments and visits or just getting a chance to give some extra attention to a child who needs it. In Amarillo, we believe it is important to have strong relationships with all of those helping our children. We strive hard to work well with the various entities that are involved with and supportive of the children in AWFC care.

Our families provide excellent care to abused/neglected children and are a special part of our ever growing family. Each family has its unique way of parenting and we love opportunities for our families to get together and share their experiences in order for all of us all to better serve the children in our community.
