Connie Garibaldi

Post Adoption Case Manager

As a part-time, Post Adoption Case Manager, Connie Garibaldi supports adoptive families by connecting them with resources, including therapies, financial aid, and more. She graduated from Texas A&M with a B.S. in Psychology, and gained experience at Child Protective Services before finding her career at Arms Wide.


Why I started with Arms Wide Adoption Services:

I knew I wanted to work with kids in need ever since a social worker spoke at my high school career day. She inspired me to pursue my psychology degree and work at CPS. After a year at CPS, my sister, who was working at Arms Wide, told me about an opening here. I loved that I would be supporting adoptive families, so I applied for the position!


My favorite part about my job:

My favorite part about my job is helping families. However, my wonderful coworkers are a close second—Cynthia and Donna are great mentors to me.


My least favorite part:

Knowing there are still 6,000 children in Texas waiting to be adopted.


More about me:

I’m bilingual—I speak both Spanish and English. And I’m a proud mom to four fantastic kids!


Ask me about:

Travel! I love exploring new places.
