Faith In Motion Manager
Foster care has always been in her heart. Irene and her husband welcomed 11 children in their home. The children ranged from 8 months old to a 17-year-old with her own 3-year-old child. Along with their own 3 biological children, they adopted 2 siblings. Irene created a foster/adopt ministry, Embrace, at her church. The ministry helped her discover the importance of community, especially the church community, in their journey. Irene recently retired from the Air Force after 28 years of service. Her retirement allowed her to start an encore career as the Faith in Motion Manager.
Foster Parent Liaison
Rachel Torres, a foster parent, began her journey two years ago. Her desire to foster came when she married her husband Hector who grew up in a family that fostered and adopted. All five of his aunts including his mother fostered for over 25 years. It was inevitable that she and Hector along with their two biological sons would soon open their hearts and home to children in need. She believes that every child deserves to feel safe and loved and, by fostering she can change the course of a child’s life for the better. She is excited to help and guide families through the foster process who are willing to fulfill those needs.
