How to Become a Support Family

Support Families must be evaluated, trained, and monitored by a provider agency to ensure they can provide a safe, nurturing home for a child.

In Texas, the state licenses and contracts with community-based provider agencies to recruit and oversee Support Families.  There are specific rules and regulations that provider agencies must follow when certifying a Support Family.  The rules vary by type of agency and the specialized needs of the children served.
