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 the leading center in Texas for children’s well-being, with a focus on mental health, foster care and adoption services. For more than 120 years, DePelchin has been turning lives around with comprehensive care for children, including psychiatric services, counseling, programs for at-risk youths, parent education, residential treatment, 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.
