Our vision is to become a centralized hub and resource center for Foster and Adoptive families in Cooke County as well as to recruit and support new foster parents in the North Texas area. An example of resources provided are clothing, hygiene and other material items, list of approved local contacts for maintaining licensing requirements as well as monthly support groups.

Our Story

How We Got Started

CTFOF was founded in January 2019 and was originally started for creating a foster support group for local families. After making contact with our agencies and case workers we were able to get in touch with 6 families and had our first support group on January 16’th 2019.

God quickly moved through the group and made it very clear that there was more to be done than just a foster support group and we needed to reach the community.  From there it’s been an adventure and journey with God as the foundation and rock, He is leading the way, clearing a path and we are blessed enough to walk through it with Him!
