Alexis Price

Foster Care Coordinator

I am so eager to work as a Foster Care Coordinator with Encourage! I have a passion for developing deep connections and relationships, and it is an honor to be welcomed into people's stories. I look forward to learning how to best support our foster families and kiddos as well as getting to walk alongside them in these meaningful journeys.
