In Nueces County alone, there are an average of more than 300 children in Foster Care EVERY MONTH!

The Nueces County Child Welfare Foundation works to assure that the needs of all children placed in Foster Care are adequately met.

Funding for the operations of the Child Welfare Foundation comes solely from donations made by concerned citizens, civic groups and other private organizations. There are NO PUBLIC FUNDS utilized to support the many projects sponsored and supported by the The Nueces County Child Welfare Foundation

Some of the activities and functions for which the Child Welfare Foundation requires funding include:
  • PROVIDING each Foster Child with a personal birthday gift on their special day each year.
  • PROVIDING the Foster Children with an annual summer picnic or similar warm weather event.
  • PROVIDING the Foster Children with a big Christmas party each year, complete with a visit from Santa Claus and his elves. Each child is provided with a full Christmas stocking at the party. The Foundation also provides the Foster Families with specially selected presents, which they can wrap and put under the tree for each Foster Child.
  • PROVIDING educational information to the public on the current situation regarding Child Abuse and Foster Care. This includes making available speakers to appear at public meetings within Nueces County.
  • PROVIDINGan annual apprecation dinner or special event to recognize the efforts and sacrifices of those families within Nueces County, which have undertaken the often-difficult task of providing Foster Homes. Safe, warm homes for children who have been removed from their natural home setting for their own protection.
