Foster parents have the unique opportunity to give children a new chance at childhood, helping them heal and move forward from the circumstances that brought them to foster care.
Thousands of children in Texas need a safe, loving home. Each child has talents, dreams and incredible potential, but are greatly affected by the circumstances they find themselves in. When surrounded by trauma, abuse and neglect, their confidence diminishes and their ability to succeed is hindered.
But, when children are uplifted, encouraged and simply loved – they learn they can succeed beyond their wildest dreams.
