TBHC Foster Care

TBHC provides foster care for children across DFW.

foster care

These children have been removed from their homes because of abuse and neglect.

Texas Baptist Home for Children is licensed by the Texas Department of Family and Protective Services (TDFPS) and OCOK as a Child Placing Agency. It provides both basic and therapeutic foster care for children of all ages. We currently work with foster care in Region 3 and 3b (DFW area). We have 3 offices to better serve families and children in these areas: Waxahachie (Main Campus), Bedford and Garland.

We contract services of levels of care for Basic, Moderate, and Specialized, and Therapeutic with TDFPS and OCOK.

To get started with our TBHC Foster Care program, you need to complete the inquiry form.

Every new family will have to complete an orientation meeting, TBHC training hours, TBHC Paperwork requirements, and a TBHC home study. All of the information about this process is presented at our orientation meeting.

Kinship

A Kinship placement is when a family member or close family friend comes forward when a child enters foster care and takes the child or children in their home. Until you are licensed as a foster parent, you have limited resources and support. TBHC works with families who have had a relative or kinship placement from CPS. We help your family as you transition into this foster care journey and make sure to provide you with training, case management, crisis management, and financial support as you provide care for your relative or kinship placement. We know this is a new season in your families and the child’s life and we want to step alongside you as you start this journey.

Next Step:

  • Fill out the Inquiry form and our recruiter will contact you with more information. Or you can visit our events page to find out when the next orientation will be in your area.
  • Trainings for foster care are held almost every month. Our training is a weekend style class. They are held at TBHC offices and church connections around the DFW area.
