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 Entrusted Houston is also currently helping replace furniture for visitation rooms that are extremely outdated.
On Sunday, July 14th, Entrusted Houston will be hosting our 3rd annual Child Protective Services Appreciation Dinner. The Appreciation Dinner will be a time where front line workers in the fight for child permanency will gather from all over Harris County for a night of fun, food and encouragement. There will be a live music performance, delicious food provided by Gringo’s, and dessert from Nothing Bundt Cakes. Our guest speaker is Jason Johnson from the Christian Alliance for Orphans; he is the National Director of Church Ministry Initiatives. While serving on staff at CAFO, Jason authored two recently released books: “ReFraming Foster Care” and “Everyone Can Do Something.” He also has published ALL IN Orphan Care. You can find him blogging regularly at www.jasonjohnsonblog.com. Jason has a passion to equip churches and encourage families no matter where they are in their foster/adoption journey. As a token of our appreciation, this year every TXDFPS employee will go home with a gift! If all of that wasn’t enough, there will be a raffle to win one of our 3 grand prizes!!”
