We envision a world in which every child is safe and healthy.
We strengthen the lives of children by enhancing their mental health and physical well-being.
DePelchin Children’s Center is committed to meeting the needs of children as one of the largest providers of mental health, foster care and adoption services in Texas. Through its clinical expertise and special brand of caring, DePelchin turns lives around, providing a full continuum of care including psychiatric services, counseling, residential treatment, programs for at-risk youths, parent education, foster care and adoption. DePelchin is a not-for-profit organization and gratefully receives its support from individuals, foundations and corporations; government grants and fees; and United Way agencies.
In 2012, DePelchin expanded beyond Greater Houston by joining with Caring Family Network, an Austin-based foster care and adoption agency, with locations throughout Texas including Austin, Brownwood, Lubbock and San Antonio.
