Foster’s Home accepts public and private placement of children at Levels of Care: Basic, Moderate, and some Specialized.
We are a nonprofit agency providing residential group care and foster care. We are supported by Churches of Christ and interested individuals.
We provide services for children from throughout Texas. Children are accepted through private placements, Juvenile Probation departments, and Children’s Protective Services.
Children in placement at Foster’s Home are raised in a family home setting, living and learning through The Sanctuary Model®. They attend weekly church services, are involved in the Erath County 4-H program, and attend Stephenville Independent School District.
Foster’s Home for Children provides a tutoring program called Achievers for each of our youth. Each student comes for tutorials for one hour on Tuesday and Thursday evenings. This program provides certified teachers to help the youth with their homework and to help the student learn any concepts that they may have missed during their previous school years. At Achievers, the high school youth work on their “My Future” book. This involves looking at job opportunities, technical schools, colleges, and universities that they may be interested in attending. They investigate the cost, the admission requirements, the degrees offered, housing, etc. The Achievers mission statement is : As teachers of the Achievers’ Program, our mission is to create a non-violent environment that encourages students to work to their highest capacity, doing required schoolwork completely and timely, and to explore new avenues of knowledge and skill while feeling safe in the classroom at all times.
