Loving Houston Foster and Adoption Ministries is a non-profit, Christian adoption agency licensed by the Texas Department of Family & Protective Services. We are located in Houston, Texas, and provide both adoption and foster care services. Our goal is to license and equip Christian homes for the purpose of loving, nurturing, and caring for at-risk children in our city.

The vision of Loving Houston Foster and Adoption Ministries is to break the cycle of poverty and abuse before it is duplicated in the next generation.

Founder and Executive Director Kim Dale along with her husband, Martin, has worked with birth moms and children from the streets since 2001 through their street ministry, which feeds and ministers to the homeless. Their non-profit organization DBA, Little Footprints Children’s Ministry, also provides practical items for biological mothers, such as diapers, baby wipes, food, clothing, and emergency motel rooms. Their goal is to assist the mothers, giving them an opportunity to be able to parent their own children.

Requirements to become a foster parent

Adults who are new to the fostering process sometimes feel overwhelmed and wonder if they will have support on their journey. Your child-placing agency is the first resource. Social services caseworkers provide aspiring foster parents with various types of support and connections. These include free educational training programs, helplines, and support groups.

It is important that foster parents build their individual support network, too. Connecting with other foster families with more experience is an excellent place to begin. Texas groups offer foster parent meetups; you can search online for the closest one.

The Texas Foster Family Association provides state training, a regional directory of support services, a summer training conference, and more. Membership benefits include getting access to foster care professionals and learning more about ways to become better caregivers. Children of TFFA members can also get assistance through the Scholarship Fund.

Austin Angels is another support organization that strives to assist foster parents and Texas foster children. They offer care packages and gifts for foster children and their caregivers, mentorship options, and education, among other resources. Foster children and teens can learn valuable skills that help prepare them for independent living, as well.
