In 1989 Gloria Campos took over the Wednesday's Child Program for WFAA-TV Channel 8, bringing the stories of North Texas children in foster care into our homes with the hopes of finding each of them their own forever home.
Today, Gloria still speaks out for these children in foster care, and urges members of the community to consider becoming CASA volunteers: “I think there is no better calling for a person than to be a CASA for a child like that, so they can have a consistent adult behind them, looking out for them.”
