Our agency functions as “extended family” to support foster parents in nurturing their children. One of our foundations is the emphasis we place on the building of relationships with our families and the communities that will provide care, love and services to the children placed in our homes.
Overseen by a board of directors with extensive knowledge in business, social service, healthcare and volunteer work, Bossier KIDS is geared toward finding ways of growing in the future.
Paul Cressend- Chairman/Business Owner
Paul Cressend joined our board of directors in November 2015 and at present resides as our Vice Chair. Paul brings 30 years of experience to the board as a business owner and entrepreneur. Paul and his wife Dianne have been active in several areas of local charity work since they moved to the Shreveport area 11 years ago. Paul said he and his wife love getting together with their four children and two grandkids to cook, relax and visit. We asked Paul lately how he became interested in Bossier Kids. Here is what he said. “Bossier KIDS became an influence in my life after I learned what it did for children and after I met the Spiveys. It is truly a wonderful way to try to bring God into the lives of children who have experienced some awful situations and heartaches.”
