As is the case throughout the United States, Central Texas is in great need of more licensed foster homes. This year, there are already more children being taken into foster care than there were in all of last year. The hope is to find homes that will provide more than just a bed. The children are in need of safety, love, and security. A local agency, A World for Children, is actively recruiting individuals and couples to become licensed foster parents. They are quick to point out, though, that if you can’t foster, there are other ways to help these children in need. If you would like to become a foster parent or help in another way, contact A World For Children.
