DePelchin Children's Center
Our newest community partner is DePelchin Children's Center. We will keep the foster care and adoption agency stocked with our art kits. Case workers from DePelchin Childrens Center and volunteers assembled the first batch of art kits yesterday at Art for the People gallery.
Depelchin case workers will use our kits when foster kids first meet their new foster family. Sometimes it can be stressful or awkward. An art project gives everyone a fun activity to focus on together. And when the kids have visitation with their birth parents they like to make artwork to give to them. Our Greeting Card Kit with cards, envelopes, markers and stickers will are the perfect art project for these foster kids. DePelchin believes every child deserves a safe, loving home. Through their foster care program, they partner with couples and individuals throughout the State of Texas who can provide temporary care for children removed from their birth families because of abuse, neglect or abandonment. Many of these children have experienced trauma and desperately need the care and support of a loving foster family. DePelchin believes every child deserves a forever family. Through their CPS adoption program, they support couples and individuals throughout the State of Texas wanting to adopt children who are in the custody of Child Protective Services and need a permanent, loving home. Through their private infant adoption program, they support couples and individuals wanting to adopt an infant. In addition, they work with birth parents throughout the State of Texas considering placing their child with a loving, adoptive family.
