KERRVILLE – The Hill Country Quilt Guild celebrated the graduation of 15 BCFS youth in foster care from high school by presenting each of them with an original handmade quilt.

This donation is the Quilt Guild’s second donation to BCFS youth. In 2013, The Quilt Guild donated their handiwork to graduates of BCFS’ YouthBuild, a job readiness and leadership program.”

“The youth have been coming in to pick up their quilts and they’ve been very appreciative,” said BCFS Kerrville center case manager Kimberly Clayton. “It has been a lot of fun to give these out.”

The BCFS center in Kerrville provides services for local families and at-risk youth and youth aging out of the foster care system to expand their skills and knowledge, strengthen their self-confidence, create healthy community relationships and help youth learn positive self-guidance.
