About us CHOICES, Inc. – Children Have Options in Caring Environments – was founded in 1986 by Gina Frazier and Anita Johnson Patten. Led by their dreams and dedication to provide options in safe and caring environments for youth, Gina and Anita started a foster care agency. They were able to train and license five homes very quickly and provided six children with caring environments in those homes within months of opening their doors. The Foster Care Program has grown steadily over the years. Gina and Anita worked as an amazing team. Gina served as Executive Director of CHOICES, while Anita explored how we could provide even more services for kids and families in our community.
