Foster Angels of Central Texas was founded in the spring of 2010 to address the growing need for assistance to foster children. Unfortunately, this population of children is most often left unseen and unheard. But the fact is that thousands of children are removed from their homes each year due to neglect and physical, sexual, and emotional abuse. These children often have little more than the clothes on their backs. It is easy to understand why foster children often grow up to have low self-esteem and self-worth, leading to a higher rate of incarceration and homelessness as adults. Foster Angels provides these children with what they need to build confidence and put them on a path to lifelong success. Every child deserves the opportunity to be great.
Foster Angels of Central Texas is modeled after Foster Angels of South Texas, a respectable and accountable agency with over a 15 years of success. The organizations are separate entities, but they share the same guiding principles–low overhead costs,consistent program efficiency, and one simple mission: to fulfill the needs of children in foster care right now.
