Through a variety of services and programs, we are able meet the specific needs of each individual we serve. We have a Residential Treatment Center that provides a therapeutic, structured environment for adolescent girls. We also have Group Homes and a Transitional Living Program for young women. These programs provide residents with the tools, resources and life skills they need to live healthy, productive lives. We also have a Foster and Adoption program that trains and verifies families in the Austin community to provide a safe, therapeutic family setting for boys and girls

Our mission is to promote healing and growth in children, young adults and families by providing a continuum of care, support and resources. We serve individuals who have experienced severe emotional trauma, abuse and neglect.

  • “It's hard work but immensely rewarding. Fostering is the best thing I'm ever going to do in my life.”


  • “…fostering is about more than kids.  It's about caring for the biological family and having compassion for their circumstances.”


  • “We need people that are willing to go the extra mile. Just having someone that we can call and talk to when we are having a bad day or someone just to have as an emergency contact.”


  • “The growth that has happened in the six weeks we've had the kids is huge. It motivates us to keep going.”
