Welcome to a bright new day and to our bright new website here at DePelchin Children's Center!

DePelchin Children's Center has been a ray of hope since its founding by Kezia Payne DePelchin more than 120 years ago.  What began as an humble orphanage in 1892 is now one of the largest providers of children’s mental health, foster care and adoption services in Houston, and in the state of Texas.

The past year has marked many exciting changes for our organization, changes that are culminating in the launch of our new website.

As part of our commitment to being the premiere center for children and families in the Greater Houston area and now throughout Texas, we have redesigned our website with additional resources, enhanced navigation and a new visual design to better support your needs.  We are also launching DePelchin’s first blog to keep you better informed and so you may hear directly from our experts in mental health, foster care and adoption.

Reflecting our long-standing commitment to quality, we welcome your feedback as we continue to improve the site.

Take a look around our new site and see why it is a bright new day at DePelchin Children’s Center!
