AWFC Corpus Christi is situated on the Gulf Coast and serves Region 11 of the Texas Department of Protective and Family Services. The mission of A World for Children is to serve at risk children and families by providing quality services focusing on prevention and therapeutic care. The staff focuses on teamwork and support for our families and children. They also work hard to ensure the families feel supported and the kids know they are special. The Corpus Christi staff also knows how to have a good time and loves to throw a party! Whether it is a foster parent appreciation event, Christmas Party, or back to school bash, you are certain to have a good time if the Corpus Christi staff are involved.

The Corpus Team encourages you to stop by and visit for a while. We will always welcome the opportunity to work with new families and educating the public regarding the services and programs that we offer. There are many ways that you can help the children of South Texas that are the victims of abuse and neglect through your generous monetary donations, volunteering for our many events and fostering opportunities.
