2012 - DePelchin expanded beyond Greater Houston by joining with Caring Family Network, an Austin-based foster care and adoption agency with locations throughout Texas.

2016 - DePelchin refocuses its mental health services on childen in the foster care system and children at risk of entering the system.  Caring Family Network officially changes its name to DePelchin Children's Center, offering foster care and adoption services in Austin, San Antonio, Brownwood and Lubbock.
