Lifting up girls in need
The girls we serve at Upbring Krause Children’s Center are far more than a number, a label, or a statistic. They have survived extraordinarily hard circumstances. These girls are warriors and survivors. Each girl who comes through our residential programs brings their own dreams, talents, and abilities, and it’s our joy to provide them a safe place to grow and thrive.
At Krause, girls who have been removed from their homes or foster placements for a variety of reasons, most due to histories of severe abuse or neglect, are engaged in the healing process through in-depth clinical therapy, personal development activities and spiritual care in a safe setting.
Most girls arrive at Krause directly from foster homes because their behaviors were too intense and disruptive for their foster parents to handle. Many have had several foster care placements before Texas Child Protective Services (CPS) and the Department of Juvenile Justice place them at Krause.
Girls stay an average of six to eight months and begin to feel a restored sense of hope in their futures – thanks to the support of Krause’s staff and therapists specializing in Trauma-Informed Care. Often during the healing process, girls discover special interests and talents and begin to live a healthy lifestyle.
