A local nonprofit is celebrating 25 years of helping kids find their forever home.

Afterwards, the organization hosted a ceremony where they released 25 balloons for their anniversary year.

The Juarez family welcomed three kids to their home. Their parents say this day helps to complete their family.

“We are so thankful to have these three new additions to our family,” Father Carlos Juarez says. “This truly is a blessing.”

East Texas Casa has helped thousands of children become adopted and works as an advocacy group for abused kids.

Volunteers tell us they are looking forward to the next 25 years of helping kids.
