Abigail Stauffer

Foster Care Coordinator

I am absolutely thrilled to be working with our foster care families in a Coordinator role! It is important to me that others know they are cared for, supported, and so loved by Jesus. Previously, I have worked in direct case management and therapy with youth, and I'm so excited to now be working with foster parents and kiddos together. When I'm not working, I enjoy spending time with my daughter, cooking, and being outside.
