Embrace Texas


a loving, stable home for every child

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.

Upcoming events & announcements

Volunteering at Embrace is not a “one size fits all” experience. Help us get to know you and how you hope to serve, and we’ll connect you with a wide array of volunteer opportunities. Whether serving as an individual, small group, or congregation, there are ways for everyone to get plugged in.

Sustaining donors provide a steady source of financial support for the Embrace ministry. This revenue allows our staff to focus on helping children and families in our community, as opposed to fundraising. Monthly (or one time) donations in any amount can be given by clicking here, entering the amount you’d like to give, then select the “make this a recurring donation” option.

Black children are: more likely to be removed from their homes due to neglect or abuse, less likely to be reunited with their families, and more likely to grow up in foster care without adoption or a permanent home. This disparity has a grievous impact on the children and families it affects. Click HERE to learn more about how DFPS is working to tackle disproportionality in child welfare.

Foster, adoptive, and kinship families are invited to join us for a weekend in nature at Embrace’s 1st Annual Family Campout, April 16-18. A safe, fun adventure for children of all ages and abilities. Click HERE to register.
