Foster Care California
EVERY child deserves a loving and supportive home.
BCFS Health and Human Services works with the State of Texas and the U.S. Office of Refugee Resettlement to match caring adults with children who need a home. Children are placed in foster homes because they have been removed from their own families due to abuse, neglect or other issues that endanger their safety. Other children in our care are from foreign countries and placed in foster care as they await the federal government's decision on how best to reunite them with their families.
What is it like to be a resource family?
The lives of resource families mirror that of any other family: soccer practice and math homework, birthday parties and church on Sunday. BCFS Health and Human Services believes that all children in foster care should have the opportunity to grow up in a supportive family environment that gives them real-life role models and one-on-one parental guidance.
