Due to safety concerns, weekend and daycare services are temporarily suspended.

These two homes are the only emergency shelters licensed by the State of Texas and dedicated to the care of children with special needs. While children may be privately placed to allow their family to attend to a crisis or enjoy a short respite from the demands of caring for their child, the majority of children placed within Respite Care’s residential service are those in state custody who have been removed from their home as a result of abuse and neglect. Participating children are enrolled in local schools, participate in recreational and educational activities, and follow a routine identical to that of a child residing in a typical home. Field trips are planned so that participants may experience recreational activities comparable to those of their non-disabled peers.
Children with special needs, ages infant to 17 years
Open 24 hours per day, 365 days per year

RMYA also provides referrals for long-term psychiatric care when necessary. Parenting Classes: Our agency offers the Becoming a Love and Logic Parent training course.

The program will remain open and accept youth so long as beds are available. In order to protect youth and staff, all incoming youth must have a normal body temperature both prior to admission and at intake. No youth will be admitted with an elevated temperature.

RMYA’s Emergency Services programs include the Bridge Emergency Shelter and La Puerta Emergency Shelter. Both shelters serve children 24-hours a day in a structured setting for up to 90 days. La Puerta will focus on chronic runaways, severely abused and trafficked children, and children with high therapeutic needs due to trauma-induced behavioral and emotional issues. Every child is evaluated for medical, mental, dental, and other health care needs when they arrive at our shelters. Professionals who are trained to help children in crisis no matter what issues they may be facing are available 24 hours a day and a master’s level therapist is assigned to help and counsel every resident. Children participate in individual and group counseling so they can develop the tools needed to manage challenges. Older residents also attend life skill classes to help educate them about food, finances, and the basics for surviving and thriving in the real world. Children at the Bridge and La Puerta will keep up with school through RMYA’s Stepping Stones Academy Charter School, which is on site. If children need additional help, RMYA can provide support through specialized tutoring. La Puerta has a large play yard, swings, and basketball court so children can exercise daily. It is crucial that children in RMYA programs experience as much normalcy as possible. Residents often attend community cultural, educational, and sporting events. All residents are able to attend religious services at their request. For more information on La Puerta or the Bridge Emergency Shelter, call 210-340-7933.
