Texas Foster Care Services

Texas Foster Care Services was established with one primary goal, to get the most vulnerable children in our communities into loving families during their time of greatest need.

We work hard to support the foster children and parents, giving the parents the tools required to give our foster children their best chance at success in regaining their normal lives.

We serve the Central Texas area, including San Antonio, Austin and surrounding communities.

Becoming a Foster Parent

Becoming a foster parent is a rewarding, but challenging decision. In most cases, the primary goal of foster care is to return the child to their biological parents (called reunification). However, the foster parent is crucial in helping make this transition as easy as possible.

Here is a brief overview of what you need to do as a foster parent:

  • Expect to work with the child’s caseworker
  • Provide for the child’s well-being
  • Learn from others
  • Take time for yourself
