- Foster Care -

Currently, there are more than 400,000 children living in foster homes in the United States with over 31,000 children in foster care in Texas, many of whom have been abandoned or removed from their homes due to abuse or neglect. Chosen Ones is dedicated to assisting current and future foster families by providing them resources to be successful.

Foster care is a system by which, certified stand-in parents temporarily care for minor children who have been removed from their birth parents because of abuse or neglect. The ultimate goal of foster care is to provide the child(ren) with a safe and nurturing environment with the services he/she needs, and then to transition the child(ren) back into a healthy environment with their biological family, either with their birth parents or other relatives. When a child is not able to return home, the courts terminate the parents’ rights to the child(ren), and the child(ren) becomes available for adoption. Typically, the foster placement becomes the adoptive placement if the foster parents choose to be the child(ren)’s permanent home, what Chosen Ones likes to call their “Forever Family.”
