The Mission of the Comal County Child Welfare Board is to support the victims of child abuse and neglect; ensure the needs of Comal County children in foster care are met; and educate the local community regarding these issues.
To help children live normal lives under less than ideal circumstances and to reduce the number of child abuse cases in Comal County.
Who We Are:
Our Board is governed by 7-15 community members who are residents of Comal County, employed full time in Comal County or reside in a Comal County taxing district. Members must apply and be approved by Commissioners Court for a three year term. Upon approval they are sworn in by the County Clerk.
The CCCWB is a non-profit 501c.3 with no paid members and is funded solely through donations and grants.
What We Do:
We support foster and kinship families by helping them work through some of the hardships that occur when children are placed in State care. We assist with the adoption process, meet every day needs with The Rainbow Room, purchase beds and fund extracurricular activities. In addition, we provide birthday, graduation and Christmas gifts.
