We need foster care due to the ever increasing number of abused and neglected children needing homes.
There are over 10,000 Texas children waiting for foster and/or adoptive homes.
In 2011 in Bexar County, there were 17,000 investigations of reported child abuse; 9000 of these were for neglect. Last year half of the fatalities of children were linked to neglect.
When foster homes are not found, these children are having to stay at Child Protective Services (CPS) offices on cots, and/or siblings are being split up and placed in separate foster homes or in residential treatment centers (RTC's).
In Bexar County and the surrounding counties, there were 1188 children adopted last year.

We work hard to support the foster children and parents, giving the parents the tools required to give our foster children their best chance at success in regaining their normal lives.
