How did Christmas Wish Project get started?
The Christmas Wish Project began in 1989, when friends made an effort to help a single foster parent, in need, during the holidays. Today, CWP works to give every foster child in Region 3b his or her own personal “Christmas Wish", a treasured gift under the tree to open on Christmas morning.
Who does Christmas Wish Project serve?
CWP provides Christmas gifts for foster children within the DFPS CPS Region 3b Counties which include Tarrant, Johnson, Hood, Palo Pinto, Parker, Erath and Somervell. Foster children must live in a foster home located within one of these counties and have an open CPS case.
Is CWP affiliated with C.P.S. or other organizations?
CWP is a volunteer and completely separate organization, and not affiliated with any other. We do rely on and appreciate the help of the Tarrant County Foster Parents Association (TCFPA), the staff members of Child Protective Services (CPS), Our Community Our Kids (OCOK) and other placement agencies for confirmation and distribution of the CWP information to foster parents.
