Foster in Texas - Laredo

The mission of Foster In Texas (FIT) is to improve the lives of children who have been removed from their families due to neglect and/or sexual, physical, or psychological abuse, by placing them in stable loving homes and providing therapeutic care as needed. FIT families are actively recruited and trained to foster basic needs children as well as infants, large sibling groups, troubled teens, and children with special medical needs.

 

Foster In Texas, a program of Lutheran Social Services of the South, Inc. (LSS) has a longstanding history of success serving vulnerable children and families, with offices in 15 communities throughout Texas: Amarillo, Austin, Corpus Christi, Dallas/Richardson, El Paso, Fort Worth, Harlingen, Houston, Laredo, Lubbock, McAllen, Mesquite/Garland, San Antonio, Tyler, and Victoria.

 

Children served are placed with us through Child Protective Services, Juvenile Probation Department, family placements, and private referrals.

 

FIT recruits, equips, and supports foster families with an experienced treatment team, a 24/7 support network, and evidenced-based training and education programs.

 

The agency’s roots go back to 1881, and today LSS and FIT provide help, healing, and hope to more than 26,000 people in Texas and Louisiana each year, regardless of religious beliefs, ethnicity, gender, or age.
