Our foster care and adoption program finds homes for children, ages birth to 18 years old. We are looking for families who are willing to emotionally invest of the life of a child through temporary or permanent care. A family provides a safe place for a child who has been through a traumatic situation in their original home.

New Horizons trains and licenses homes for foster care and adoption in and around Abilene, Brownwood, and San Angelo, Texas

Foster care is an essential service for children who must live apart from their parents due to abuse or neglect while maintaining legal and usually, affectional ties. The value of family foster care is that it can respond to unique, individual needs of children and their families through the strength of family living, and through family and community support.

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.

I’m adopted and I’ve tried to give back to this org and they don’t seem to appreciate the effort. Offered donations and tutoring since I’m an educator, and I was blown off several times.

My 15 yr old son is at new Horizons. He tells me they feed him good and he feels safe.
I know he is ready to come home to be with his family.
I'm Grateful to New Horizon Co. And the C.P.S. for finding my son taking him in and keeping him safe, well fed and protected from this unpertictable 2020.
Thank you
D.C. Judd and Family
