Families & Kids


BCFS Health and Human Services provides matching services for potential adoptive parents to ensure each child is a good fit for the home. With the aid of a case manager and BCFS Health and Human Services program staff, adoptive parents are able to effortlessly navigate through the adoption process. BCFS Health and Human Services works to facilitate the adoption and act as a liason on parents’ behalves.

Foster Care

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.
