Kim Holtzclaw

Regional Consultant

Kim’s wide variety of experiences that add to her role as a Trainer for Fostering Hope. Throughout college, she worked as a Youth Pastor and mentored a teen in the foster care system. After gaining her Bachelor’s in Human Sciences from Tarleton State University, she became a High School Family and Community Sciences teacher.  After struggling with infertility, she and her husband, Brian, adopted a 2 ½-year-old and a newborn within 6 months of each other. Walking through that process alone without much support gave Kim the motivation to begin working with a newly formed foster care ministry at her church. During those 9 years serving families on their foster care, adoption, and kinship journeys, she and Brian fostered twice. She has also served as a Court-Appointed Special Advocate (CASA) in the Highland Lakes area for the last three years. Kim strongly believes her work in foster care and adoption is a calling to help others find their place as God has called us all to care for children from hard places.
