We have an orphan crisis in our country. Here in South Texas, the situation is no better. In response to this crisis, we formed 4KIDS of South Texas with the simple goal of doing everything possible to serve the needs of orphans and the families that serve them. While serving as foster parents, learning to meet the needs of the children in our homes, the founders of 4KIDS of South Texas became acutely aware of the immense crisis children in our region are facing.
God opened doors of opportunity to have a great impact on the foster care system and the families and children they serve. We realized there was a need for all children in foster care to have HOPE, for government agents to have HELP as they struggle to find good homes for children in crisis, and for the biological families of these kids to have opportunities to HEAL.
Our model of care was developed by 4KIDS of South Florida and has received national attention as a proven success, having helped kids in crisis for almost 20 years. Their level of care for these children is beyond what has been witnessed in any other agency. For this reason, we chose to use their model to help us reach our goals here in South Texas.
