Houston, Texas and surrounding areas - we need YOUR help.

Covid-19 has changed so many things for so many of us - including those in #fostercare. With current guidelines limiting most social activities, we are unable to fundraise as we typically do each year for our kiddos. This has created a desperate need for SCHOOL SUPPLIES.

Pencils, erasers, spiral notebooks, crayons, folders, pens, etc - we are seeking donations of any and all school supplies. Can't help with supplies? Use the link below to make a monetary donation. But please be sure you specify HOUSTON under office location.

https://awfc46738.thankyou4caring.org/supporters

Or if you can't make a monetary donation - you can help us by sharing this post across social media! Help us start off this upcoming school year on the right foot for our kiddos by equipping them with the right tools to succeed!

Message us here on Facebook or email [email protected] to help today!

Happy Wednesday, guys! Sharing this post from our agency's homepage. Take a look for some great ideas on how to keep kids entertained while we continue to self-quarantine!

Happy Wednesday, y'all! While we continue to adjust to our new normal, we want to begin offering tips and ideas to keep your families entertained, engaged and otherwise distracted from the constant onslaught of COVID-19 news coverage.

We're starting off with a list of the best kids' tv shows and movies to stream! The best part? This great article from Mommy Poppins includes plenty of educational options too! Know of other great titles for families to check out? Drop some more ideas in the comment section below!

Hey #Houston and surrounding areas: we need your help! This upcoming August is our annual #LaunchCamp - a summer excursion we designed for our teenaged foster youth. For 4 days and 3 nights our staff comes together to help motivate and inspire our youth to dream big for their futures! But it's quite an undertaking - this is where YOU come in! Sponsor a child for $250 to cover all costs for them to attend - can't sponsor? Donate any amount - every dollar helps! We are also in need of product donations - chips, waters, sodas, gatorade etc! If you or someone you know can help please reach out to our office! You can find the contact info on our flyer or simply hit the Message button below! 💕

AWFC - Houston!

A World For Children is committed to meeting the needs of Houston’s most vulnerable members of society through our foster care and adoption programs. The agency believes in meeting the needs of the entire family through ongoing support and training provided by our dedicated team. A World For Children is a Christian, state licensed non-profit child placing agency, offering an array of services to children in substitute care. We believe that all children deserve to live in a safe and caring environment.

The mission of A World For Children is to serve at risk children and families by providing quality services focusing on prevention, support, assessment, therapeutic intervention and permanency. As a 501 (c) 3 non profit organization, AWFC works with over 1000 children each year to provide each individual child with a quality of life unmatched by another. Respect, dignity and excellence form the cornerstone from which all services at A World For Children operate. At AWFC, we provide ongoing monitoring and evaluation of agency processes to ensure the effectiveness and efficiency of our services.

The Houston branch office provides services to Regions 5 and 6. We believe that as a Christian agency, we should set the standard for excellence in everything we do and, as a team, we work hard to achieve this goal.
