I continue to be very grateful for the many ways that Embrace advocates for foster/at-risk children, how they support foster/adoptive families and how they bring churches together to serve the foster community!
Embrace inspired my husband and I to begin our journey as foster parents and supported us throughout our journey and the adoption of our girls. They do so much in the community!
Embrace is such an amazing organization! They work with families that are fostering/adopting in ways that really matter and make a difference. One of my favorite things about Embrace is how they devote time, energy and money into kids aging out of foster care. As they transition into life as an adult, they help lessen the burden. The staff is always happy to help and genuinely love what they do.
Embrace has been a wonderful resource in our foster/adopt journey. They do so much good for the community and I love volunteering with them whenever I can.
Embrace Texas is full of people who are doing so much more than "going through the motions" of serving others. They are living examples and in the trenches with those they serve. They use their personal experiences to educate and empower others to serve foster children in a multitude of ways. Their programs are wide ranging - recruiting new foster families, supporting current foster parents, equipping/empowering 18 yr old foster kids who age out of the system, services for parents at risk of losing custody, training groups across communities to provide various services...and acting as key players in legislation related to all these aspects. I've worked for/with non profit organizations for 20+ years and I'm not sure I have ever witnessed the level of commitment or breadth of outreach you see with Embrace Texas.
Embrace has been such an invaluable gift to our family! The resources they have pointed us to and provided have helped us on our families foster/adoption journey. The community we’ve gained through participating with them has also been wonderful and life-giving!
Embrace Texas as been an invaluable resource in helping to get our churches foster/adoption ministry running. They offer great ways to get your church body involved in helping foster families and kids in our area.
Embrace Texas is an incredible organization that has supported my family and engaged churches for years ensuring we are supported and have access to resources to care for vulnerable children and families.
Volunteering with and through Embrace Texas has truly been a joy and blessing. I love that they care about educating people, not just finding "hands" to do the work. They have a real heart for these kids and families, witnessed in the way they live their own lives.
I have been a part of several different programs (creating weighted blankets, volunteering at the HS Graduation party, etc) that directly and indirectly support foster children and families, and have thoroughly enjoyed each event. These precious kids don't deserve the hand they've been dealt, yet they are still hopeful. Part of that hope comes from having positive, supportive, encouraging adults in their life that they engage with and I'm grateful to have the opportunity to be one of those through Embrace!
