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
This Christmas, we invite you to be a part of the life-changing work of Embrace by making a donation to the ministry. With 3,300 children in foster care in our community (a number that is growing by the day), it’s more important than ever to ensure every neglected and abused child in our community has a safe place to call home.

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.
The foster care system is experiencing an increase in COVID-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.
