Providing Christ-centered services
to children in need and their families.
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, adoption, 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.
"Some of the children we serve have been victims of sexual, physical or emotional abuse, neglect or abandonment. Others have come into our care after the loss of a parent. Helping them heal is a major challenge. At Presbyterian Children's Homes and Services, we believe that children and their family members deserve to have their voices heard. Our job is to help them identify their goals, the challenges they face, and the skills they possess to succeed. We then walk beside them, listening carefully and patiently, and supporting them throughout this process. We call this approach the Presbyterian Children's Homes and Services Way, affectionately known by our staff as the PCHAS Way."
-Ed Knight, President, Presbyterian Children's Homes and Services
