Maria Reina

Foster Care Coordinator

I began working with foster children in CCHO’s residential center six months as a treatment specialist. I’m now helping families as a Foster Care Coordinator. I love being able to help foster children heal from their past and look into their future. Through Jesus, they are discovering who they are and following their dreams.
