Thousands of amazing children in Texas need a safe, loving home. These children have talents, dreams and incredible potential, but they need a champion to help them learn and grow — someone to encourage their dreams and prepare them for life’s many successes. You can help.
We know the process to become a foster parent is a big deal. We also know it’s worth it. It takes time and work, but you won’t be alone!
Why become a foster parent?
Foster parents have the unique opportunity to give a child a second chance at childhood, helping them to heal and move on from the circumstances that brought them to foster care.
Why Foster with Upbring?
When you foster through Upbring Foster In Texas (FIT), you are joining a team of people focused on helping children succeed. While the child you welcome into your home will be in your care, you will not be alone in raising that child. Upbring will be your community. Our highly regarded team of knowledgeable, effective caseworkers will help you every step of the way.
You don’t need superpowers to be a superhero for a child. You also don’t need to be wealthy, you don’t need to have a Ph.D. in child psychology, and you don’t need to be perfect. Learn the basic qualifications for fostering.
Welcoming a child into your home and loving and caring for that child comes with many rewards and a few challenges. Here you can find what you can expect from the entire process.
Upbring will be with you through your entire foster journey. Here are the benefits, resources and training we offer.
