Kids First has a contract with the State of Texas to verify foster homes. A foster home is a temporary family for the child who was removed from an abusive or neglectful situation. All of our children have been removed from an abusive or neglectful situation by Child Protective Services. Kids First screens and verifies homes who are willing to care for the child(ren) on a short-term basis. The time frame can be as short as a few days to one year.
