The Children’s Shelter provides treatment foster care for children from birth to 18 years old who have been removed from their birth families due to abuse, abandonment or neglect. There is an on-going need for loving, stable and licensed therapeutic foster care homes in Bexar County to provide the environment children need while awaiting permanency (biological reunification, kinship placement or natural adoption).
Treatment foster care can range from overnight upwards to 22 months.
Treatment foster parents may elect to adopt children when their biological parents’ rights have been terminated.
Children: Birth to 18 years old.
