The house parents and kids have begun dreaming and making plans for this summer. It is an especially exciting time this year with the promise of activities WITHOUT COVID restrictions. Many of our kids have never been on a true vacation where they take in cultural activities, try regional foods and/or see variations in landscape other than that of West Texas. Some of them may have never been able to ask, “Are we there yet?” But with your help, we can make it happen. Summer will be here before we know it and we want to thank you for helping [...]

Our community never ceases to amaze me with their outpouring of support for our kiddos! The 2021 holiday season was filled with the usual chaos, but we also received many new kiddos towards the Christmas holidays. Having to leave your home and all you know, especially around Christmas, can be so difficult and scary. One of our newest kids said it best the morning after she arrived, “I finally feel safe.” Our community stepped up to make sure we not only have a place for these kiddos to feel safe, but that we were able to celebrate the season with [...]

Goodbyes have been said to 2021 and another new year begins! In the cottages many other goodbyes were also said to kids who returned home to parents or went to adoptive placements. While it was sad to say goodbye, we are excited for new beginnings for those families. For houseparents and staff, goodbyes are bittersweet, and clearly take their toll on our hearts. However, this is the work to which we are committed – to care for children for the season that the Lord entrusts them to us. Now as the new year begins, we will welcome new faces, new [...]

At Texas Girls & Boys Ranch we have 4 Cottages plus an Emergency Children’s Shelter where the children live with two houseparents and any children the houseparents may have of their own. Many times that can amount to up to 10 people in the house! As you might imagine, shopping for a house of 10 hungry mouths can be quite the task. To make the shopping process easier, TXGBR has a commissary from which house parents can order all groceries. The process is simplified by a single order form turned into our commissary staff, Lacy, on a weekly basis. [...]

Being a teenager is hard enough but being a teenager in foster care can be even more challenging. There are teens who graduate from school and from foster care and suddenly have to face going into the world all on their own. Most young adults need support from their family once they leave home. They call home to ask for advice about how to cook something, or how to complete adult tasks such as filing taxes or buying a car. They may even call to ask for help paying a bill. They also usually want a place to go [...]
