Krause Children's Center

Krause Children's Center Krause is a residential treatment center for girls ages 12-17 who have survived complex trauma and abuse. Upbring is a leading Texas-based, faith-inspired nonprofit organization working to break the cycle of child abuse by empowering children, families and communities.

Upbring embraces public-private partnerships with individual stakeholders; federal, state and local government agencies; community groups; small businesses; and large corporations to deliver services that produce measurable progress toward five key markers of every child’s well-being: safety, life skills, education, health and vocation. Upbring benefits nearly 30,000 families each year with its life-changing programs—including foster care, adoption, education, residential treatment and community services. While Upbring has evolved over more than 135 years of service, our organization remains firmly focused on delivering innovative programs and services that address the root causes of child abuse and neglect.

Here are a few snapshots from our Christmas morning! 📸 Thanks to the combined efforts and generosity of the Katy community, 65 girls received over 800 gifts this year! "Krause Children's Center has the best community," said Quana Smith, our Director of Volunteer Services. "Thank you to all of our wonderful volunteers and donors that support Krause! I wish you could have seen the girl's faces when they woke up and saw Christmas trees surrounded by presents. For some of these girls, this was the first Christmas they received presents." 🎁

Our children use art as an outlet to express their emotions, thanks to you. “Being creative calms me down and helps me get my feelings out in a positive way,” said Octavia, a girl who experienced healing at Krause Children's Center. Pressing colored pencils to paper, each stroke she sketched helped ease the flashbacks that sometimes surfaced because of her painful past. Our children's center staff and therapists specialize in supporting girls like Octavia using trauma-informed care. Through individual and group therapy sessions, Octavia learned coping skills that helped her express her feelings using creative outlets like drawing and songwriting.

At our children’s centers sweet, furry emotional support animals bring companionship and big smiles to our girls’ faces. “I feel an instant connection with animals. We relate to each other because we are both learning to trust,” said Elizabeth, a girl who experienced healing at one of our children’s centers. These support animals comfort our girls as they navigate different emotions during therapy and begin their healing journey.

Thank you Santa 365!

Dear Santa 365,
Thank you for being Santa for us this season! You checked off all the boxes on the Christmas lists for our girls in foster care and gave them suitcases, so they have a place to keep their belongings wherever they go. Your gifts show our girls that people are rooting and caring for them, even ones they have never met before. Christmas morning can't come soon enough! ❤️
