Emergency Shelter

Children who have experienced trauma receive a new chance at life as they begin their healing in our Emergency Shelter. Our Emergency Shelter Program provides temporary care for boys and girls, birth to 17, who cannot remain in their home. Over 80% of these children are under the protection of the Texas Department of Family and Protective Services.

Therapeutic Residential Foster Care

Our residential program has been nationally accredited by the Council on Accreditation since 2000. Our campus is immersed in trauma-informed care and services. All of our directors are TBRI® certified practitioners who train all staff to see the “whole child” in their care and help that child reach their highest potential.

Supervised Independent Living

Each year, over 600 youth in Bexar County will age out of the foster care system without a support system to help them transition into adulthood. This age group is at-risk for homelessness, drug abuse and incarceration. Our Supervised Independent Living Program is one of only eight programs in Texas to support young adults as they attend college or vocational school, work in the community or enlist in the military.

Foster Care and Adoption

Children outnumber available foster homes 40 to 1. The need for foster homes in Bexar County to help children heal from abuse and neglect is a critical level. If you have thought about being a foster care parent, now is the time to do it.

Family/Parent Education Program

Parenting Education Program

Parents, grandparents, guardians or anyone caring for children, 0-17 are invited to join us for a free eight-week parenting workshop. Based on the Nurturing Parenting Program, this evidence-based model teaches behavioral management tips, creates more confident family leaders and helps caregivers recognize the power they posses in their own family’s development.

Teen Parent and Child Program

Boysville is answering the call for help and is expanding its residential foster care to include Teen Mothers and their child who are currently in foster care.  The teen moms and child will live on our campus.


When you donate your time and energy to Boysville you help better the lives of every child we serve.
