Fostering

Provide a temporary home for a child


  • Over 400 kids in foster/kinship care in Tom Green County
  • Foster homes are most needed for children age 6 and over, and sibling groups
  • Children in care are oftentimes moved because the foster or kinship family is not adequately prepared to care for the child
  • Moving and inconsistent care can cause more trauma in a child than the original abusive environment
