About Fiesta Texas
Most of the children we serve have never been out of the town in which they were born, much less stayed at a hotel or visited an amusement park. In an effort to expose our children to a fun-filled summer, we have a Summer Adventure at Fiesta Texas. Siblings that were separated for placement can come back together and enjoy the day with one another. Additionally, our kids get to have many first time experiences – a first trip outside their town, a first trip to a hotel, with a swimming pool. Some of them have never even had as simple of an experience as swimming in a pool. Every year, we are amazed at the stories we are told about the children’s reaction to this event. They have been through so much and deserve to cast their “adult-size” worries aside and just be a child for a day.
