Become a Foster Parent/Family
More than 2,600 children are served annually in foster care in Bexar County. Under Family Tapestry, the care for children and families is being transformed by weaving together the community’s strengths and producing a foster care system focusing on keeping children safe, placing them with caring, nurturing adults and helping them find a permanent stable home.
When children are trying to survive abuse, neglect, and/or abandonment, they are limited in their ability to dream and reach their full and maximum potential. Foster parents are not just providing basic needs, they are ensuring each child receives individualized care and attention, physical and emotional wellbeing, access to education, and provides them with an opportunity to achieve their dreams and reach their full potential.
At Family Tapestry, we center on recruiting families to address the specific needs of children and youth who have experienced trauma due to prolonged abuse, neglect, and/or abandonment.
Our children and youth have exceptional needs. In Bexar County, we need licensed families/parents to provide care for high needs infants, school-aged children and teenagers, sibling groups of two to six children, medically fragile children, pregnant or parenting teen foster youth, survivors of sex trafficking, and LGBTQPIA youth.
Are You a Relative Caregiver or Kinship Family?
At Family Tapestry, we understand children and youth thrive in a family setting and can heal quicker with a loving and safe family member. In our community and across our state of Texas, there is a growing number of relative caregivers taking primary care of their relative children, such as grandparents raising grandchildren. Family Tapestry is here to help you and your family by transforming the foster care experience.
