GRANT MAKING PORTFOLIO


Child Welfare

“Anyone who does not provide for their relatives, and especially for their own household, has denied the faith and is worse than an unbeliever.”

– 1 Timothy 5:8

The Foundation seeks to alleviate conditions that are harmful to families through the provision of parent education and training, in-home visiting programs, and other helpful interventions that strengthen families. In addition, the Foundation supports organizations that provide refuge from unsafe living conditions including homelessness, and second-chance programs that help struggling students or youth involved with the juvenile justice system.

The Foundation seeks to provide children and youth who are referred to the substitute care system with opportunities to heal from their trauma, be raised by loving caregivers, and quickly and safely find permanency. The Foundation supports organizations that address the needs of those in temporary or permanent conservatorship by meeting their immediate and future needs. Additionally, the Foundation supports innovations, such as Community-Based Care, that improve the foster care system in Texas.
