RENO — Washoe County’s Department of Social Services (WCDSS) will present the first “Angel Among Us” Award to longtime foster parent Virdell Weston Wednesday. The award presentation will take place from 6 to 8 p.m. during the Foster/Adopt Support Group of Northern Nevada meeting held at the Early Learning Program on Foster Drive in Reno.

“Virdell did the tough job of taking children in and loving them like her own, and then she did the even tougher job of letting them go,” said foster care liaison Heather Wenker.

Weston has fostered 57 children in the past 13 years and is no longer taking in foster children due to her health, but has worked so well with birth parents and foster children that the Social Services team believes she represents what the “Angel Among Us Award” is all about.

The Early Learning Program is located at 1270 Foster Drive in Reno. For more information, visit or call 337-4470.
