Seibel Family Visitation & Exchange Center along with the nonprofit agencies of The Welcome Center and Children’s Dental Health Services.  KAUS News spoke with Hema Alvarado-Guerrero, the Executive Director of the Parenting Resource Center who stated that plans to build the facility have been in motion for some time…
