Texas Foster Care and Adoption Services is a state-licensed, private non-profit agency dedicated to finding homes for children who desperately need them.

We continuously search for people in the community to provide loving, nurturing and healing homes to abused and neglected children who have been identified by the Texas Department of Family and Protective Services.

Foster Care is when a child is placed in the temporary care of a family other than his/her own as the result of problems or challenges that are taking place within the birth family, or while critical elements of an adoption are being completed

Foster parents are primarily ordinary people who have decided to step-up to make a difference in the life of a child, but they are often not alone in their work. Most foster agencies offer support to help foster parents be successful.

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.

This would be a negative -5 star if allowed. Our family pleads with you- take your time and service to a better place that actually tries to help children. We waisted 2.5 years going through the ropes and classes & this & that to NOT get a single call for placement! We are 100% certified but never got even one phone call. This agency is a family ran place that does not mind discriminating (if you are Hispanic or other you probably will not make it through the interview process let alone the entire foster care process- they do a damn good job on assuring you don’t). As an added bonus this agency dips their hands into every government aspect without ever helping the children or waiting families. We plead with whoever reads this- take your time and your good samaritan efforts somewhere... literally anywhere else! Look at their track record for foster to adopt- oh wait you won’t find one because it’s non-existent. Again, please go anywhere else, do not waste your time like we have. You have been warned.

I had an interview with this company, let just say the owner is very rude and unprofessional. Her worker is her slave, and this place is supposed to be about helping others and making them feel wanted and welcomed.
