The staff at A World For Children, a private foster care agency in Texas, is delighted to launch its new website. Please go to our new website at www.awfc.org to find out about exciting things that are happening in our world. A World For Children is blessed to serve God’s special children – those who have been abused and/or neglected.
Recently, the news has been reporting that children are flooding our borders, seeking refuge from unbelievable atrocities in their home countries. Since October, over 52,000 children/youth have entered out country from Central America. Our heart goes out to all of these youth. AWFC is attempting to help in this crisis with providing foster homes for some of them. This is a mammoth problem, with no obvious solution. The media is spotlighting this dire need. If you want to help, please contact us at (888) 579-3880.
In our zeal to help with this crisis, it is important to remember the plight of our resident abused and /or neglected Texas children. Over 25,000 children in Texas are in substitute care, with 16,000 in the Texas foster care system. Currently we turn away approximately 1000 children monthly because we have no appropriate placements for them. AWFC is constantly scrambling to recruit more foster parents to serve the increasing needs of Texas children. If you have a heart for this ministry, please call (888) 579-3880 and we will put you in communication with one of our 14 offices Statewide.
