Teen Girls in Foster Care are Given Experience of Life Time

Eagle Quest, Inc., That ADOPTED Girl, JM Hair Gallery and Lindo Michochan partner to give underprivileged teen girls a well-rounded, confidence-building experience.EQ-pr-sweet-1-18-01

Las Vegas, NV — January 18, 2016. Eagle Quest, Inc. partnered with That ADOPTED Girl to host the first annual S.W.E.E.T. event. In attendance were twenty underprivileged teen girls currently residing in foster care. S.W.E.E.T. is an acronym for Self-Worth Encourage Empower Thrive. The goal of the S.W.E.E.T. Event lies within the title and the purpose is to “build self-worth from inside, to outside experience.” The day included workshop activities, professional makeovers sponsored by JM Hair Gallery and a three-course dinner sponsored by Lindo Michochan.

Programming Coordinator, Edylynn Quijano stated, “We wanted an event that will help jump start the year for our teens girls and help them to value themselves as individuals and encourage them to take responsibility for their own lives.”

EQ-pr-sweet-1-18-03The day began with workshop activities presented by Founder and President of That ADOPTED Girl, Juliana Whitney wherein attendees made an “About Me” book to encourage each girl’s sense of self. Then the girls had an interactive full face make up demonstration presented by Make-up Artist and Eagle Quest Foster Parent, Oscar Camacho. Each girl was given a gift bag filled with make-up, and learned how to apply their own makeup step by step to create a natural and fresh every day look. After a quick and delicious lunch, the girls headed to JM Hair Gallery. Typically closed on a Monday, the lovely ladies at JM Hair Gallery came to work on their day off to participate in the S.W.E.E.T. EVENT for our girls. The amazing stylists were able to give them a fresh hair style or up-do make over. Each girl was also provided with goodie bags containing hygiene products and cosmetics. Then off to be wowed by the hilarious and energetic comedian Jeff Civillico at the Flamingo hotel. We received a group discounted rate for our S.W.E.E.T. Event that allowed our girls to see an amazing family fun show on the world famous Las Vegas Strip. After the show, Mr. Civillico posed for group photos with the girls and provided them with autographed posters. Our night ended with a delicious dinner at Lindo Michochan where the girls were serenaded by a guitarist and singer while enjoying authentic gourmet Mexican cuisine.

“You could see the strength and confidence given back to these young ladies after their hair and make-up makeovers! The girls literally transformed into smiling, glamorous and self-assure young women! To witness that was truly a taste of SWEET success!” -Edylynn Quijano

Eagle Quest Celebrates Our 2015 High School Graduates With A Night of Fun & Excitement

eq-insanity

Las Vegas, NV — June 16, 2015. On June 15th, 2015 Eagle Quest held its 4th annual “On Top of the World” Grad Night Celebration. One of Eagle Quest’s favorite things is to celebrate client milestones and when Children from the foster care system graduate from high school we love to recognize this monumental accomplishment. The limo departed from our office with class of 2015 graduates; some even earning the prestigious Millennium Scholarship. The limo ride was filled with joy and anticipation, the recent graduates could not wait for the first class evening that was planned exclusively for them. As the limo made it to the Stratosphere the new graduates quickly made their way up 829 feet to the observation deck where infamous rides like the Big Shot, Insanity, X-Scream and coveted Sky Jump awaited them. After hitting the rides hard our graduates were treated to a five-course meal that they would never forget; some amazing desserts complimented the meal perfectly. Soon after, it was back to the rides again celebrating all of their hard work over the last four years. The limo ride home was filled with laughter and reminiscing about the unforgettable evening. One youth remarked” This by far was the best evening of my entire life”. That comment made the accompanying Eagle Quest team members realize that they were part of something special that would never be forgotten by these impressive young graduates. We eagerly look forward to celebrating next year with the Class of 2016 and wish the 2015 Eagle Quest high school graduates success and prosperity in their future endeavors. We are so proud of you all!

Eagle Quest Celebrates Our 50th Adoption, Giving Foster Children Forever Homes.

adoption-med

Las Vegas, NV — September 10, 2016. Eagle Quest recently celebrated our 50th adoption. We are so proud of all of our Foster Parents who have adopted foster children in recent years and provided permanent homes and families for these children. Adoption is the ultimate pinnacle in the Foster Care world and it is such an incredible blessing for both the child and foster parent to be solidified as a forever family. We absolutely love to see Eagle Quest Foster Parents adopt children placed with them and welcome them into their family. Whether it’s a single child adoption or a large sibling group adoption we take the time to celebrate and recognize Eagle Quest foster parents who foster to adopt. Adoption is truly the greatest thing for a foster child and we want to give a big shout out to all of our Eagle Quest foster parents who have adopted; thank you for putting “Kids First”!
