SUPPORT THE CHILDREN
The mission of the Chambers County Child Welfare Board is to work to support foster children and adoption; to meet the needs of abused and neglected children in our county; and to assist Child Protective Services in aiding the children under their care.
The goal of a child welfare system is to ensure that
children are protected from abuse and neglect,
preferably by helping families safely care for children in their own homes. When that’s not possible,
the system looks for other alternatives,
so that all children grow up in a loving, permanent home. Many different individuals and groups
help make this happen in Texas.

Foster Children? This is Great News!
Every April, the Children's Bureau observes National Child Abuse Prevention Month to raise public awareness of child abuse and neglect, recommit efforts and resources aimed at protecting children and strengthening families, and promote community involvement through activities that support the cause.

Being a foster parent is a rewarding yet difficult responsibility that requires physical and emotional stamina. So much time is spent caring for the children in their home, that little time or energy is left to care for themselves. Foster Parents' Night Out provides DHS foster parents time to enjoy a much deserved and regularly scheduled break. By bringing their foster, adopted and biological children to FPNO, parents can take the night off while trained volunteers provide their children with fun activities in a safe environment. By providing quality respite care, we aim to help caregivers take care of themselves and increase the retention rate of great foster parents in our community.
