Where We Serve

The Rio Grande Children’s Home provides 24 hour basic child care for dependent, neglected and orphaned children and residential care for children in a long-term or short-term setting. In 1998, RGV Children’s Home partnered with Buckner Foster Care and Adoption which provides safe and loving homes for vulnerable children who need them — for a season or forever. Foster care and adoption are profound ways to change a child’s life forever, and our commitment to family means we provide comprehensive services for you and the children we serve across Texas. Our goal and ministry is to help every child find hope and healing through family foster care or permanency through reunification with kin or through the blessing of adoption. RGC Children’s Home team of trained case managers and social workers builds personal relationships and offers emotional support and counseling to every child and family they serve. Throughout their history, dating back to 1884, we have placed more than 4,000 children in loving adoptive homes. They serve children and equip families through these foster care and adoption ministries in nine locations across the state of Texas. The children’s home provides a temporary home that meet a child’s basic developmental needs, including a loving family, nutrition, clothing, a feeling of belonging, safety, socialization, interpersonal skills, care for personal health and hygiene, extra supervision and education.
