Where We Serve
St. PJ’s is licensed for short-term emergency shelter for 20 domestic children and youth from birth to 17 years; and 82 international children and youth from birth to 17 who are victims of abuse, neglect and human and sex trafficking. Individual and ongoing assessments are conducted on each child during their stay, as the shelter is an assessment center as well.
St. PJ’s is also licensed by the State of Texas as a long-term facility able to accept placement of up to 38 children and youth, ages 5 to 17. Beyond meeting the basic needs of the children in their care, such as food and clothing, they also provide a structured and therapeutic environment. While children are in their care, they are committed to providing them with every positive experience a parent would give their own child. Children are able to stay at the home until they complete high school. One of the unique characteristics of St. PJ’s is the number of sibling groups that call St. PJ’s “home,” due mainly to the broad age range served by the home. The average length of stay is 13 months.
Chicktime SA Central believes that EVERY girl needs support from those who love her and we enter their lives as caring members of the community focused on their restoration and just doing what we can to bring a bright spot to their lives.
***Please note for the safety of the children, St. PJ requires that all volunteers complete a background check and provide proof of identification. Proof of identification includes a drivers license or government issued ID. Your social security number will also need to be verified by St. PJ’s; therefore, you will be required to bring your social security card for verification purposes only.
