Angel Reach held their 10th Annual “Always Pursue” Graduation Drive-Thru Celebration Parade on Sunday, June 7th, 2020 in the Harvest parking lot of The Woodlands United Methodist Church located at 2200 Lake Woodlands Dr. The event featured a graduate friendly environment including photo opportunities in cap and gown, graduate recognition, and gifts and scholarships were awarded.
This event was sponsored by Angel Reach and its community partners CASA, Love Fosters Hope and Texas Department of Family and Protective Services. Angel Reach is a nonprofit in Conroe that is committed to help serve the communities’ foster/kinship families and youth who have aged out of the foster care system, as well as homeless and at risk youth.

Graduating from high school should be an exciting time filled with hope and encouragement from friends and family, and a sense of a wide open future full of adventure and ready to be conquered. For kids in foster care, this is not always the case. Graduation for them can be a time of fear and trepidation. The statistics tell their story:
- Less than 50% of foster youth graduate from high school
- Less than 2% of foster youth graduate from college
These teens have beaten the odds and the event celebrated the graduates.
For the past 9 years, Angel Reach has strived to address this issue for each teen in foster care in Montgomery County. Due to COVID-19 this year, Angel Reach celebrated the youth again, just a little differently with the graduates experiencing recognition and celebration by way of an Always Pursue Drive-Thru Parade. Please join Angel Reach and its community partners, CASA, Love Fosters Hope and Texas Department of Family and Protective Services, by lifting each of the graduates up in prayer as they move forward in their journey.
