CarePortal is an online platform that brings the needs of hurting children and families in your community to your attention. Caseworkers uncover the needs. CarePortal makes local churches aware, giving them a real-time opportunity to respond.  Agape Ranch serves the Aransas, Nueces, and San Patricio Counties by utilizing the CarePortal.  In cases of crisis and not abuse or neglect, the local churches meet the physical needs and keep families together, preventing children from going into the foster care system.  This vetted system prevents foster care through the generosity of our community.

Agencies that request the needs into the Care Portal in the Coastal Bend:
Aransas County Children's Coalition
