LUFKIN, TX (KTRE) -  Next month marks National Foster Parent month. A Bair Foundation spokesman in Lufkin said the need is greater than ever for foster parents. The Bair Foundation is a Christian foster care ministry dedicated to the mission of providing a safe and loving home to children. That mission is becoming more of a challenge due to the increasing amount of children in need of a foster home.

"It's terrifying to think these kids are going to have to go to a home where they're not as loved or as wanted," said Angie Acosta, Foster Care Parent Recruiter at The Bair Foundation.

Acosta said three to four children are in need of foster care in East Texas per day. For more information, click here.
