There is an extreme shortage of teenage foster homes in the state of Texas. As a result, we are always seeking to add homes to our network. Additionally, there are great opportunities for those with previous foster experience to parent in one of our larger homes designed and purposed for housing 3-4 youth in foster care. We provide extensive support to our parents, with ongoing training, regular visits, respite and house sitters, and a team of transportation volunteers.
Much of what we do is supported through the efforts of volunteerism. In that we are still in our formative days, the volunteer needs are largely focused on the renovation of Oak Creek Place. We are, however, building a database of those desiring to serve now and in the future.
