A Little Bit of History, and some Facts

Caring Family Network (CFN) is a foster care and adoption agency licensed by the State of Texas. Since 1992, CFN has provided loving, nurturing and healing homes to abused and neglected children of Central Texas by partnering with foster parents throughout the state. Through extraordinary work, dedication, and commitment by our licensed foster parents and experienced treatment teams, we provide therapeutic services to over 600 abused and neglected children annually.

We are excited to announce that on January 1, 2016, Caring Family Network will officially become DePelchin Children’s Center, the leading center in Texas for children’s well-being with a focus on mental health, foster care and adoption services.  For the past three years, Caring Family Network has been operating as an affiliate of DePelchin with offices in Austin, Brownwood, Lubbock and San Antonio.  We have been working since 2012 to merge our two organizations, combining our expertise and best practices to better serve Texas children.  Starting January 1, 2016, all Caring Family Network locations will be referred to as DePelchin Children’s Center and all visits to this website will be redirected to www.depelchin.org

We are looking for couples and individuals who are:

  • Called to care for children from difficult situations,
  • Ready to be part of one of the most unique, exciting and meaningful experiences in life,
  • Ready to be challenged, changed, and charged with an awesome privilege and responsibility.

Join us on our never-ending journey to transform, heal, connect, and empower children to become all that they can be through the magic, power and grace of human relationships. For more information, please click on the BECOME A CFN FAMILY link located in your left window pane. Thank you!
