The Children’s Aid Society of West Texas
…Law Enforcement removed two boys ages 14 & 10 from a raided home. They were brought to the Teen Shelter. These boys struggled academically and the oldest had a history of juvenile arrests. The Shelter was determined to keep them together and they were eventually placed in a good home and are thriving.
The Children’s Home and Teen Shelter provide basic care and emergency shelter for abused, neglected, runaway and homeless youth 17 months to 17 years of age in North Texas serving an 11 county region. All youth are provided shelter, case management, supervision, food, clothing, counseling, daily living skills training, tutoring, and referrals for medical/psychological counseling services. All children are provided basic care items such as clothing, grooming needs, toys, books, and school supplies. Most importantly, they provide a safe place for these children to live.
