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

If you want to host an Embrace [Not Your Typical] Angel Tree at your church or business, email maryh@embracetexas.org for more information. If you want to know more about how you can help as an individual or small group, please CLICK HERE to visit our Angel Tree page. 

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 a permanent home. This disparity has a grievous impact on the children and families it affects. Learn more about how DFPS is working to tackle disproportionality.

Whether you’re a foster, adoptive, or kinship care family in need of gently used clothing, baby equipment, or furniture OR someone who would like to donate those items to a family in need, we have a 🌎 of resources available for you!  Click here to learn more!

Before you take your gently used toys, clothing, baby equipment, or sporting goods to a thrift store for resale, consider offering them to a foster or adoptive family in our community through The Loop:By Embrace. This innovative Facebook group allows you to connect directly with the needs of families in our community.

Join us on Wednesday, November 10 for an informative, inspiring event focused on finding forever families for children lingering in foster care in our community. Click HERE to learn more or register.
