Presbyterian Children's Home & Services

There is a reason that your family is considering Foster Care & Adoption. We’re excited to meet you and learn about why you want to be family for children who need one. At Presbyterian Children’s Homes and Services (PCHAS) we believe that every child can experience healing from trauma, should remain connected to their story, and shouldn’t have to wait for stability. These things aren’t optional for us, and we anticipate that you agree. There’s a good chance that Foster Care & Adoption are new to you, but that’s okay because we’ve been providing Christ-centered care and support for children and families in need for more than 115 years and we’re here for you every step of the way.

Our Austin Foster Care & Adoption Program partners with families who live in Bastrop, Caldwell, Comal, Hays, Travis and Williamson counties. We verify families for Foster Care and Adoption, and we consider it an honor to walk alongside Kinship Families, too. At PCHAS, you’re going to learn about Trust-Based Relational Intervention® (TBRI®) and how we use this attachment-rich, trauma-informed philosophy to help families like you lead children toward healing in loving, safe and nurturing family relationships. PCHAS families benefit from our family centered, strength focused, goal driven approach. We live out this philosophy of care by keeping caseloads low for our Case Managers so that we can increase availability for your family. Furthermore, you can count on the expertise of every member of our team for the support you need, 24/7. PCHAS’ history is rooted in the Presbyterian Church and we are grateful for the generosity of so many who continue to support our work. Today, we enthusiastically partner with agencies, individuals and families from a variety of faith communities and backgrounds. We’re eager to connect and hear why you want to be family for children.
