About Foster's Home for Children
Located in Stephenville, Texas, Foster’s Home for Children is in its 60th year of providing residential care for children of trauma.
We provide a home for children from both private and public referral sources.
Foster’s Home receives over 90% of its support from donations.
The Home is an accredited charity by the Better Business Bureau.
Sherwood Foster, oilman and rancher, with his wife Myrtie, founded the home named in their honor in 1985. Children came to live at the first house in 1960. Since its humble beginnings, Foster’s Home has served over 4,000 children and is affiliated with the churches of Christ. Because of dreamers like the Fosters, hurting children have a place to call home. Children today are counting on others to carry on the dream begun by these pioneers. Your help is essential to ensure that Foster’s Home serves children for many more years to come.
Sherwood and Myrtie Foster’s Home for Children has embraced the Sanctuary Model of Trauma Informed Care as the conduit for implementing its mission to children and families suffering from violence, neglect, abuse, addiction, racism and trauma. Sanctuary is based on trauma theory and systems theory, which makes it particularly effective for an entire organization. Sanctuary is based on the idea that healing from trauma, stress and adversity requires creating an environment that promotes healing.
The Foster's Home provides foster care homes, placement at the Foster's home, and the S.O.A.R. program for young adult aging out of foster care.
