Upcoming events & announcements
Are you interested in a simple a way to help support foster children and families in our area? Consider writing a letter of encouragement to a local caseworker that is on the front lines protecting, defending, and advocating for children and families on our community.
The foster care system is experiencing an increase in Corona-related child abuse and neglect, and the amount of children waiting for their forever families is on the rise. Click HERE to find out more about our upcoming First Steps meeting to find out how you can start the process of opening your home to these children.
All Texas residents are “mandatory reporters” of child abuse and neglect. 25% of child abuse reports in Texas are made by educators and childcare workers. With many children now isolated in their homes, it is more important than ever that every member of the community remain vigilant. If you suspect child abuse or neglect, call 1-800-252-5400.
Visit this temporary page to access Corona-related efforts, updates, and information. We, as a community, have the opportunity to step up and be a part of keeping children in our community safe.
Foster, adoptive, kinship and waiting moms are invited to join us for an encouraging weekend getaway where you will enjoy community with other moms, yummy food, crafting and more! Click HERE to learn more and get your tickets.
Embrace connects willing hands with opportunities to serve children in foster, adoptive and kinship care.
For over a decade, Embrace has provided life changing programs and resources to vulnerable children and their caregivers. Our services are provided at no cost to the families we serve thanks to the generosity of our community, partner churches, and the many volunteers who give their time and talent to improve the lives of children. By partnering with Embrace you’re helping children lingering in the foster care system find the love and stability of a forever family. You’re ministering to foster parents through respite care, support groups and valuable training. You’re supporting teens who “age-out” of foster care without an adoptive family. When you volunteer or give to Embrace, you’re making a difference.
If you are a foster parent, adoptive parent, kinship care provider or foster alumni, it is our joy to serve you & your family. Embrace programs and resources are open to families from all child placing agencies. If you are in need of services and live outside the DFW area (DFPS Region 3), we are happy to connect you with one of our partner non-profit organizations in your region or state, or help you launch similar efforts in your area.
