  • Description
  • Texas Foster Care and Adoption Services is a private non-profit child placing agency licensed by the State of Texas. The organization was formed by like-minded individuals, dedicated to the mission of making a real difference in the lives of children in the State of Texas. The number of foster children in the San Antonio and Austin area is growing more and more every year. Today more than ever, we face the growing issue of needing more foster parents in the San Antonio region. By informing people every day about the need for foster care in our area, more people will become familiar with the available programs and benefits to fostering children. We hope that more families will consider fostering children. Many people in the San Antonio region either know current or former foster children or foster families. During the last census in 2009 there were a total of 547,415 children in the United States in foster care. Over 27,000 of these children are from Texas. These numbers have increased substantially over the past two years. Foster children should be a direct concern for every tax payer because our tax dollars are used to pay for the programs used to support foster children. With an increase in education and awareness, we can stop this problem from growing and begin to resolve it. We are searching for people in the community to provide loving, nurturing and healing homes to abused and neglected children in the state of Texas. Texas Foster Care covers the Austin, San Marcos, New Braunfels, and San Antonio areas with a special emphasis on Bexar County. We are members of Interagency Foster Care Coalition.
