Foster Home Developer
BCFS Health and Human Services works with the State of Texas and the U.S. Office of Refugee Resettlement to match caring adults with children who need a home. Children in our care come from foreign countries and are placed in foster care as they await the federal government’s decision on how best to reunify them with their families.
 
Long Term foster care (LTFC) is designed for children who have pending legal relief. DFW LTFC families are licensed to accept children from 0 to 17. LTFC is designed to provide a healthy and nurturing environment for children while they are in our care. We believe in working together, and together we can make a difference in the lives of children and youth we serve.
