WHAT IS THE RANCH?

We Are Building a Neighborhood for Foster Children to Call Home

In South Texas, there aren’t enough homes for children to take refuge while their lives are in flux, so we’re mitigating that problem by building a literal neighborhood complete with homes, playgrounds, rec areas, and onsite respite care providers to love and support foster children. This will:
 

  • Keep sibling groups together.

  • Provide quick response respite care.

  • Provide housing for kids who have aged out of foster care.

Children deserve to have someone tuck them into bed each night, to help them with their homework, to teach them how to ride a bike, and to watch them grow up. However, there are children in the foster care system that haven’t been able to have some of these things. 

 

Through compassionate care and connection to the community, Agape Ranch gives these children places to call home and families that love them so that they can know that they are loved and valued.

Find out more about the three types of homes in the neighborhood at The Ranch.

Other Ways to Get Involved

Foster Parent Night Out is a free program that gives current foster parents a short break from the day-to-day challenges that arise when raising foster children. This event welcomes parents to register their children. During the event, children are able to engage in a variety of activities under the supervision of certified respite care providers and additional childcare volunteers.

Foster families face unique challenges when hosting children in the foster program that result in burnout for too many families. We train Respite Care Providers to enter into their world to give them much needed breaks, go on vacations, have date nights, and to give the children another adult that loves them.

Agape Acts is a supportive care network for foster families that helps bring support in times of need (i.e., providing meals, doing yard work, minor home repairs or housework). It exists to empower church communities and individuals to tenderly care for the foster families that are within their midst.

Help Give Children A Place To Call Home & Families That Love Them

We need your help to break the cycle of tragedy, trauma, and heartbreak in the foster care system. Help us fund the neighborhood, so children can stop living in instability and start experiencing love and care.
