WASHINGTON, D.C—This week, Congressman Poe (TX-02) recognized the DePelchin Children’s Center as a 2015 “Angel in Adoption” for their important work serving children and families in the Houston community for over 120 years. This award was received by DeJuana Jernigan.

“The DePelchin center is doing the Lord’s work- helping our community’s children and their families. They provide foster care and adoption services as well as parental education, mental health services and more. They work to strengthen families—the greatest bond of all. The Houston community is lucky to call the DePelchin center our own. They truly deserve this recognition.”
