Daphne grew up in Austin. She learned the importance of giving back at an early age. Her love of helping others showed in her volunteer work. She has volunteered for organizations such as her church, St. Vincent de Paul, food pantries, Girl Scouts, Boy Scouts, school PTAs, and other local non-profit organizations. She is a former City Councilwoman, Texas Municipal League board member, and more. She currently serves as a board member of the Hays Historical Commission.
Daphne and her husband, Willie, have been married for 24 years. They live in Kyle, Texas where they are a licensed foster family with a specialized level of care. They have experience in informal, kinship, and licensed placements. The Tenorios have two biological children, Will (23) and Natalia (18). Both children graduated from Hays CISD, where Willie serves as a school board trustee. They currently have the privilege of sharing their lives with two placements.
Daphne says, “I look forward to being able to continue to advocate for children and families in need. Being a foster parent is hard work. It is also one of the most rewarding experiences I have ever known. Knowing there are people who share the same passion for caring for children while supporting the families who care for those children is such a blessing. I look forward to helping Austin Angels with their mission and goals.”
