Information Meeting– Families Open to Priority Needs (Greater Houston and South Texas/Corpus Christi Areas)

Are you open to parenting the children who need you the most through fostering or foster care adoption? Join us for our upcoming Information Meeting to learn more about the current needs of children in care and how Arms Wide may support you in becoming a foster or adoptive parent.

Arms Wide Adoption Services is actively supporting potential foster and adoptive families who are able to meet  priority needs, including:

  • Kinship families parenting children related to them, and placed in their care by CPS
  • Families open to parenting sibling groups of 3 or more children, through either fostering or adoption
  • Families open to parenting 1 or more teenagers
  • African American families hoping to parent African American children through fostering or adoption

If you’d like to learn more, participating in an Information Meeting is the first step. During the Information Meeting, an Arms Wide Coordinator will walk you through the process of fostering or adopting a child or children in foster care and answer all of your questions.
