Presbyterian Chidren's Homes and Services
Since its beginnings in 1903 as an orphanage in Dallas, Presbyterian Children’s Homes and Services has been providing residential care and other services to children and families with no place else to turn. Whether it's through one of our group homes, a foster home, our Child and Family Program, or the Advanced Education and Aftercare Program, we do all we can to help show the children in our care that they are beloved children of God. Presbyterian Children’s Homes and Services (PCHAS) got its start in 1903, when a mother dying from tuberculosis asked her minister to help her find someone to care for her four young children.
Over the past century, this ministry has expanded to meet the needs of today’s families. We serve children age birth to 17 who have suffered from neglect, abuse and abandonment, or children whose families are experiencing some type of crisis, such as the death of a parent, divorce, illness, violence, homelessness, parental drug/alcohol abuse and other issues that threaten family stability
Presbyterian Children’s Homes and Services has four main programs: Group Homes, Foster Care, Child and Family and Advanced Education/Aftercare.
PCHAS is a 501(c)3 charitable organization committed to fulfilling our mission of providing Christ-centered care and family support regardless of race, gender, religion, national origin, or financial resources. PCHAS is a ministry of Presbyterian Church (USA) and licensed by the Texas Department of Family and Protective Services. This agency is a sponsor agency of the Teaching-Family Association and a member of the national association of Presbyterian Children’s Homes and Related Ministries.
