Taking a stand to make a difference!

There are currently 3,500 youth in foster care in the state of Texas living outside of traditional foster homes. They are living in Residential Treatment Centers* (RTC’S), group homes* or emergency shelters.

The Champion Project exists to reach these youth through a trauma informed, group mentoring program.  We are looking to engage faith-based communities to come together and instill community, stability and consistency in the lives of these youth.

The Champion Project is built on the vision that each church will create a safe and loving environment for their local youth in foster care by welcoming them not only into their doors but also into their lives demonstrating the unconditional love of God.

Change a life and change the generations that follow

The foster care system can be most difficult for those children 10 and older who are not adopted or reunited with their families. Though they may start in traditional foster care homes, their trauma generally causes them to act out in ways that ultimately place them on a trajectory to be placed in Group Homes*, Residential Treatment Centers* (RTC’S), and emergency shelters until they are 18 years old and age out of the system. Most of the 3,500 kids living outside of traditional foster care homes will age out and be on their own without having a single person they believe they can trust or count on.

*Residential Treatment Centers (RTC’s):

RTC programs may be operated by public or private agencies and often provide an array of services, including educational, therapeutic and medical services for foster youth. RTC’s provide intensive help for youth with serious emotional and behavior problems. While receiving residential treatment, children and youth temporarily live outside of their home and in a facility where they can be supervised and monitored by trained staff. The large majority of children in RTC’s are foster children.

*Group Homes:

Live-in, out-of-home care placement in which staff are trained to work with children and youth whose specific needs are best addressed in a highly structured environment. These placements are time limited and offer a higher level of structure and supervision than what can be provided in a foster home.
