In His Hands Children’s Home is located in Trinidad, Texas. Our 10,000 square foot building has been completed renovated (hank you to all of our volunteers and supporters for making this huge renovation possible) and we are completely ready to welcome in children!
We officially have a license with the State, and we have been hiring additional staff as well as completing training! Currently, we are waiting for our contract with the State, for them to bring us children -as well as working on alternative contracts as well. 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 are 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.
As of March 2023:
We got our license!! After our application acceptance, passing our inspection, and additional paperwork -we finally are licensed as a General Residential Operation for 20 girls!! We are ready for kids, and waiting for our contract to be solidified for them to bring us kids. Thank you to everyone who has continued to pray for us and support us this whole time! We are still working on training all the staff currently. We have been interviewing additional staff and are anxious to hire those individuals and get them trained as soon as possible. Please be praying for us, that the Lord will bring us children very soon -either by the State putting the pedal to the metal with our contract, or with an alternate agency working with us sooner.
How you can help:
Pray: Pray for our staff, the children who will enter our doors, and any volunteers. Pray that the State contractors will help us to 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 a percentage of the cost to run our facility. We need individuals, churches, or businesses who will be willing to invest in the lives of children.
