About Us

Presbyterian Children’s Homes and Services (PCHAS) provides Christ-centered care and support for struggling children and families.

Over the past 114 years, we’ve created programs that greatly improve children’s lives – enabling their recovery from abuse, abandonment, and other forms of neglect.

We also reach out and work closely with their parents, some of whom struggle with drug and/or alcohol addiction, unemployment, poverty, depression, and other obstacles to healthy parenting.

Programs offered by Presbyterian Children’s Homes and Services Texas

Our continuum of care enables us to help children and families in each stage of life:

Our Adoption program places babies in loving homes. We offer training and support for couples seeking to adopt children and free programs for women who are experiencing an unplanned pregnancy and are considering making an adoption plan for their child.

Older children are sometimes better served through our Group Homes, where up to six children live together with caring Home Parents.

Our Foster Care team recruits and trains caring foster families ready to help children who need loving homes.  When a child is removed from their family and placed in a foster home, it’s challenging for both the child and the foster parents. But it can be a profoundly healing relationship. Are you ready to open your heart and home to a child in need? Are you ready to be Foster Proud? Click this link to find out more:

Our Education program engages the children every step of the way. We provide tutoring through high school, and help high school graduates submit college, trade or technical school applications, apply for financial aid, and find housing. PCHAS provides funding for tuition as well as room and board.

Our Child and Family program preserves families in times of crisis. Twenty-one Child and Family Specialists in 18 cities provide counseling as well as financial, emotional and spiritual support.

Our Single Parent Family program offers young mothers and their children a place to call home. We offer them not only a safe and comfortable place to live, but also family therapy, life skills training, and a way out of dependence on others.

Our Transitional Living program provides assistance to foster children who “age out” of the foster care system. At the age of 18, many youngsters are ill-prepared for the real world and may end up unemployed, homeless or run into trouble with the law. Presbyterian Children’s Homes and Services is dedicated to helping young adults who may face challenges and difficult times of transition by providing them a safe residential environment in which they can grow, increase life skills, and achieve self-sufficiency.

The benefits of our programs last a lifetime. Some of our Group Home “graduates,” who are now in their 70s, 80s, and 90s, share with us that our programs taught them they were children of God and worthy to be loved.

That’s a lesson they never outgrow.
