Children's Hope Child Placing Agency Division (Houston) was the selected group to be featured to capture what Hope means from a child's perspective and from an adult's perspective. Our youngest presenter was age 4. The adults selected to present were either former foster kids or adults who have been through some type of trauma. The event was held November 16th - 18th and 15,000 people were able to view the exhibit. Through this event, Children's Hope was able to touch on recruitment, marketing, normalcy and perhaps most important of all AWARENESS about foster care.

Daniel Alvarado, Director of Development for Children’s Hope, attended the 2018 Giving Tuesday ribbon cutting hosted in Lubbock, Texas by United Supermarkets. Given Tuesday refers to the Tuesday after Thanksgiving each year that signals the beginning of the period between Thanksgiving and Christmas. It was initiated by the 92nd Street Young Men's and Young Women's Hebrew Association and the United Nations Foundation in New York in 2012 as an answer to the commercialization of the holiday season.

At Children’s Hope Residential Services, we take today’s abused and neglected children and prepare them to be tomorrow’s future leaders. We teach them life skills that will place them in good standing throughout their development. We provide them with training in how to navigate relationships and society across a variety of cultures and contexts. We give them opportunities to develop a sense of self that includes a strong work ethic, a set of core vocational skills, and an understanding that they can contribute to the global economy. We show abused and neglected children that they can be agents of change in a world where they have previously felt out of control, victims of uncaring, cruel circumstance.

Children’s Hope Residential Services, Inc. provides placement for abused and neglected children across the state of Texas. Abuse and neglect causes trauma that influences how these children cope with their environment. Add on top of the original trauma the fact that these children have been removed from their homes and you have a child who is hurting deep down inside. They are confused, lonely, scared, angry, and often feel misplaced guilt for their situation.
