Upbring is on a mission to break the cycle of child abuse by empowering children to take back their lives and build a bright future free from abuse, neglect and trauma. We are working to raise expectations within the community, and within the children themselves, about what they can achieve in life. They may have had a rough start, but their life can be redeemed. They can grow into adults who pass on the kindness they received, instead of the violence.
Our Residential Treatment Centers, Emergency Shelters and Trinity Charter Schools are equipped with the staff and resources to provide these children with the protection, counseling, education and most importantly love that they need to heal and grow.
Residential Treatment Centers (RTCs) serve girls who have survived extraordinarily hard circumstances. These amazing girls are warriors. Each girl who comes to our RTCs brings her own dreams, talents, and abilities. Beyond the basic needs of shelter, clothing and food, New Life and Krause also provide personalized therapy and on-campus education through Trinity Charter Schools. It’s our joy to provide every girl in our care with a safe place to grow and thrive.

Children’s shelters and Transitional Foster Care for unaccompanied minors provide short-term care that will leave a long-term impact in these children’s lives by offering shelter, counseling, vocational training, education and spiritual care.

Upbring sponsors the charter for Trinity Charter Schools (TCS) to help support Upbring’s RTC and Emergency Shelter programs – no other children’s services agency in Texas has this unique capability. Through TCS, students learn appropriate social skills in a safe, structured, therapeutic environment before they transition back into the public school system or the next phase of their lives. TCS is fully accredited by the Texas Education Agency (TEA).
