Mission and History


Providing sanctuary and healing to children of trauma.


Sherwood Foster, oilman and rancher, with his wife Myrtie, founded the home named in their honor in 1985.  Children came to live at the first house in 1960.  Since its humble beginnings, Foster’s Home has served over 4,000 children and is affiliated with the churches of Christ.

Because of dreamers like the Fosters, hurting children have a place to call home.  Children today are counting on others to carry on the dream begun by these pioneers.  Your help is essential to ensure that Foster’s Home serves children for many more years to come.
