substitute care

We work to provide opportunities for children and youth to heal and thrive.

The Foundation seeks organizations that support children in substitute care and ensure that all children achieve permanency in home that is safe and healthy. For youth who have been maltreated and removed from their home, the Foundation supports organizations that provide those youth with effective support services and safe, therapeutic placements – especially those that can meet the needs of youth with high needs. The Foundation also supports organizations that fight to hold perpetrators of child abuse and neglect accountable.

The Foundation supports organizations that address the needs of those in temporary or permanency 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.

The Foundation’s focus in child substitute care is primarily:

  • Building community capacity to care for youth who have been abused or neglected
  • Providing youth in substitute care with therapeutic placements and services
