Oak Creek Place
Oak Creek Place is a transition foster home for foster girls ages 16-22. The focus of this home is to provide thorough life-skills training, a full and completed education, and a strong sense of belonging to a Christ-centric community.
Based in McKinney, Texas Oak Creek Place is the first of a growing network of homes meeting the needs of transitioning foster youth. Each will be given the opportunity for success through mentoring, life-skills training, faith-focused interaction, and educational guidance.
