  • We provide cribs, car seats and highchairs for babies receiving service from Child Protective Services.

  • We help maintain family visitation rooms for the purpose of family reunification.

  • We host a regional foster teen graduation party along with Texas Dept. of Family and Protective Services.

  • We provide prom dresses for foster teens attending their first prom.

  • Our Sibling Revelry project brings foster children together with their siblings who are not housed together.

  • Our Brighter Christmas for Foster Kids Campaign includes foster teens gift cards, foster family Christmas parties, and the Adopt a Kinship Care Family project. For many foster children our events are the only time they will see their siblings during the holidays.

 
PREVENTION PROGRAMS:
  • Our Blue Ribbon Church enables churches to keep their church, their children, and their community safer.

  • We host a free WINGS program that helps victims overcome adverse childhood experiences.

  • We co-sponsor the Annual Seminar in Forensic Sciences along with C.A.P.E (Child Abuse Prevention Education), and Valley Baptist Medical Center.

  • Our Kinship Care Program helps children remain out of foster care by helping extended family members to step in as caretakers. We provide emergency items and transportation as needed.

Our mission is to meet the unique needs of abused and neglected children living in South Texas and to equip the faith community on a national and international level to participate in prevention and relief efforts within their own communities.
