Services: Christian Homes & Family Services’ vision is a Christian home for every child. The ministry changes lives and builds Christian families by providing free residential and community maternity care for young women with unplanned pregnancies and simultaneously recruits, screens and prepares Christian couples to adopt. The ministry also recruits, screens and trains Christian couples to provide safe and loving, private home foster care for children who have been abused, abandoned, or neglected and are in temporary custody of the State of Texas. Adopting and fostering couples must be committed to the Lord, committed to their marriage, and committed to their children knowing the love of Jesus, and His plan for their life. To promote adoption as an alternative to abortion, Christian Homes provide free Adoption Option training to pregnancy resource center staffs and others who have contact with birth mothers. Christian Homes also provides post-adoption services. Birth mother and adoption services are offered nation-wide. Foster care is limited to east Texas and west central Texas.
