In His Hands Children’s Home is located in Trinidad, Texas. Renovations on a 10,000 square foot building have been completed! Thank you to all of our volunteers and supporters for making this huge renovation possible!
At this time, our estimate for opening is February 2023. Currently, we are waiting for our inspection with the State, as well as hiring additional staff. Once officially open, the facility will accommodate about 20 children at a time. The house will also accommodate two sets of house parents and other 24/7 staff to care for the children. We will be licensed with the State of Texas to take foster kids, but we hope to open to the community for care of any child in need once fully funded.
Take a virtual tour of our progress on our Facebook page.
How you can help:
Pray: Pray for our staff, the children who will enter our doors, and any volunteers. Pray that the State regulators will help us to open and receive children quickly. Pray for community relations to continue to strengthen and grow.
Spread awareness: Tell everyone about our ministry and encourage them to get involved in any way possible.
Become a volunteer: Get on the schedule to volunteer weekly or bi-weekly doing specific tasks or filling specific needs at the Home, now or in the future. Volunteers can mentor kids, help with day or overnight supervision,
Donate: This is our biggest need at this time! Monthly donors are essential to operations. The State of Texas only pays about 50% of the cost to run our facility. We need individuals, churches, or businesses who will be willing to invest in the lives of children.

As of January 2023:
Our paperwork application with the State has been approved!! We are now working with the inspection unit and hope to have that completed toward the beginning of February. Once our inspection is approved, we have one more meeting and then we will be licensed! We hope to have kids around the end of February. Thank you to everyone who has continued to pray for us and support us this whole time! We are working on training all the staff currently, and still hiring more -especially overnight supervisors. Join us in prayer that our inspection and meeting goes well!
Through the years, thanks to our dedicated volunteers we have completed the Children’s Home and we are ready to open!
