Itasca Foster Care Village 2 Cropped 2

Through seven caring foster homes, kids feel loved and siblings can stay together. Our learning programs serve all ages of children on our campus from kindergarten to college or trade school.

At the village, foster parents find an unsurpassed level of camaraderie and support while children thrive in a place where they are known and loved. We offer the community, support and space you need to fulfill your passion for making sure kids feel loved and siblings can stay together.

What is the Foster Care Village?

  • The Foster Care Village represents 120 years of experience in caring for children.
  • From our 1903 beginning as an orphanage to our days as a children’s home and later a group home campus, we’ve maintained our commitment to providing excellent care and evolved to meet the needs of children and families.
  • Rooted in the best and brightest model of trauma-informed care, the Foster Care Village ensures that each child becomes a member of a family.

When Foster Families move to the Village, they get the keys to one of PCHAS’s spacious homes where rent, utilities, internet and landscaping expenses are waived. Foster families also receive a generous monthly reimbursement. Village families share PCHAS’ commitment to ensuring that siblings, even in large sibling groups, can remain connected by making our homes available for 5 or 6 children at a time, which may include up to 2 biological or adopted children. Just like all foster families, Village families have the final say regarding placement, so we look to them to play a very active role in placement decisions.


Staff are near and available to offer support, but look to foster families to lead their home and offer children the guidance from parents that they need. Counseling is made available, on-site, for every youth in care. Children attend public schools and the Village Education Services Director supervises after-school tutoring and provides additional support within Itasca ISD.
