DePelchin Children’s Center believes that every child deserves to be safe and healthy.   An accredited foster care and adoption agency with an expertise in trauma, DePelchin serves its community’s most vulnerable children and families and works to break the cycles of abuse and neglect.  Our approach to caring for kids integrates at-risk prevention, foster care, adoption and post-adoption programs to improve the mental health and physical well-being of children at-risk or within the State’s child welfare system.  Founded as an orphanage in 1892, DePelchin is a non-profit organization with locations throughout Houston and Greater Texas and gratefully receives support from individuals, foundations, corporations, government grants and the United Way.
