Promoting the vision that everyone can have a part in helping foster children in Houston achieve normalcy and permanency.
Entrusted Houston meets the needs of the foster and adopt community to promote restoration for kids, families, and front line workers in Jesus’s name.
Entrusted Houston was born out of a church ministry to help provide support for foster/adoptive families in the Houston area. Over the years it has grown beyond the church activities and is now a 501(c)(3) organization providing support to foster/adoptive families, Child Protective Services (CPS) and biological families across Houston in a variety of capacities. Entrusted Houston intends to continue their current programs and also develop new ones as the needs arise until every child has a permanent home. Entrusted Houston exists to unite, empower and mobilize churches and individuals across greater Houston to support CPS, foster children, biological families, and foster/adoptive families. We will do this by:
Organizing regional networks of churches to put on an annual appreciation dinner for CPS workers in Region 6A.
Helping support foster/adoptive families through providing basic needs
Hosting trauma informed care training for anyone caring for children from hard places to help them better understand the children’s needs.
Helping raise funds to provide new car seats, beds, and sometimes appliances for biological families and foster families.
Building external support for networks from churches and organizations across the city.
Raising awareness of foster care needs in Houston, specifically Region 6A.
Ensuring church mobilization to support this effort until every child has a home.
Entrusted Houston helps CPS obtain items for their clients to help prevent removal of children from loving homes that need basic necessities for their children. Entrusted Houston is also currently helping replace furniture for visitation rooms that are extremely outdated.
For the past three years, we have hosted a Child Protective Services Appreciation dinner. This is a time where front line workers in the fight for child permanency, gather from around Harris County for a night of fun, food, and encouragement from our ministry and guest speakers. Live music, delicious food, and dessert will be provided. There will also be a chance to win amazing grand prizes.
CPS Christmas Gift Delivery and Party
This year we are collecting gifts for 250 children in CPS care. We willl go as a group to deliver the gifts and host a party for all of the families. While the caregivers pick out gifts for the children, CPS workers and volunteers will have a variety of Christmas activities to do with the children.
