Foster Care

Children in Foster Care

Please Note: Our program is a foster program exclusively (not an adoptive program).

Is Being a Foster Parent a Good Fit for Me?

  • You are firmly committed to partnering with our agency and the State to keep children and youth safe.
  • You’re great with kids and understand that your role in their lives may be short-term.
  • You’re organized and able to support taking youth in your care to school, doctor and therapy appointments, and meetings with our team and Child Protective Services.

Special Needs in Texas

  • Foster families who can accommodate 2 or more children. Siblings removed from their biological family’s home fare better if they can stay together.
  • Foster families that really understand and appreciate adolescence. Teenagers need loving, resilient foster families who “get” that stage of life and can show them love and support while helping them cope with an uncertain future.
  • Foster families willing to work with children and youth who have a higher level of medical and behavioral health needs. Healing comes through acceptance and thorough follow-through on treatment and accessing expert support.
